Honoring Frederick Douglass on the 200th Anniversary of his birth.
Social reformer, author, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman
Born Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey, the exact date of Frederick Douglass’ birth is unknown, and the year is disputed. He personally chose the 14th of February as his date of birth. The first recorded year of his birth is 1817 (from Douglass’ account).
Escaping from slavery on his third attempt when he was about twenty-one-years-old, Frederick changed his surname first to Johnson then to Douglass to hide his identity. He purchased his freedom in 1847.
“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”
“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”
“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
Dr. Jaxon Ray has only ever wanted one woman. He’s loved her from afar since their Junior School days, worshipping the ground she walks on, intent on having her for his own when the time is right.
Amber St. George isn’t interested in the trappings that come with her family’s wealth. A simple life as a teacher at an underprivileged school, a comfortable home with her lover, and good friends; that’s all she desires.
Once Jax decides it’s time to take what’s his, Amber finds herself at the mercy of a madman. A sociopath with access to the latest neurological advancements, who possesses the ability to use her own mind to keep her captive. Programmed to forget. Reprogrammed as her captor’s perfect partner, Amber’s left with medically-induced amnesia and no idea that she’s in for the fight of her life.
When the people who know you’re missing aren’t on your side, and the love of your life has been led to believe that you’ve turned your back on him, is rescue possible? When you can’t remember the real you, is escape even on the cards?
