Author Jana Petkenabout this book: Dark Shadows, A 2016 Readers' Favorite award winner. International Amazon bestseller.

Mercy Carver: Dark Shadows is a powerful story and a compelling page-turner. The realism of the times shines from the pages as the story follows Mercy Carver's journey from London's stink-filled poor neighborhoods to her captivity in a Liverpool brothel.

When Mercy is saved by Jacob Stone, a Southern gentleman from Virginia and owner of one hundred slaves, she has no idea that the fateful meeting will lead her to America on the brink of civil war.

In Virginia she is betrayed by Jacob, and when Mercy is forced to leave him, she unwittingly becomes involved in the Underground Railroad and its runaway slaves.

As you read this story it becomes clear that it is well researched, painfully honest and disturbing at times. The topics of human trafficking, slavery, and the poverty of the lower classes at that time, makes this a must-read and unforgettable story.

A fast paced adventure and love story set during the dying days of the Old South.
