River's Daughter

Abigail Richard's earliest memory is of wading with her mother in the cool waters of the creek near their home. The dark-skinned daughter of a mixed marriage in a post-Civil War pioneer town, Gail finds herself ostracized in a way her pale-skinned brothers never are — for her skill in swimming, her mother, and her color. It is only when her mother leaves her behind and she is forced to protect herself against other people's manipulatons that Gail dives to the water's depths for protection — and finally learns where she truly comes from.

Author Biography:

Tasha Campbell has been writing since she realized in second grade that she could make her own stories when she'd read everything she could in the house. Many-odd years later, she's still at it. She believes that if all your books fit on the shelves, you don't have enough books. If anyone asks, she pledged Tri Psi Phi (Try Sci-Fi) in college. Raised in the South, she now lives in Washington State with her husband and her many useless collections of toys and other paraphanelia.
