Tiny Blush of Sunlight is inspired by the true story of a French Hugenot family that emigrated to North Carolina and took slaves with them to Ohio to set them free. The journey begins on two plantations near Charleston, South Carolina and weaves its way through many lives, until it finally reaches Ohio. The story opens a fascinating and compelling window into the antebellum lowcountry. The lives of two slaves, from very different plantations, intersect with the life of a prominent Charleston attorney. Slavery and ambivalence stand trial.
