Drawing upon massive research in diaries, letters, memoirs, and oral histories, the author argues that the lives of antebellum southern women, enslaved and free, differed fundamentally from those of northern women and that it is not possible to understand antebellum southern women by applying models derived from New England sources.

Volume 3 in The House of Grey Series Fantasy, friendship, and fate await you in Collin Earl’s The House of Grey, based on the popular audio fiction by the same name. 14-year-old Monson Grey faces the same challenges that any freshman high school kid would: difficult classes, weird teachers, food fights…girls. Except, Monson Grey is not Monson Grey. At least, when he looks at himself in the mirror, the scarred face staring back is not someone he recognizes. Now he finds himself attending an extraordinary school, the recipient of an incredible scholarship, among ridiculously rich classmates, all with no memory of how he got there or what to expect. All he has from his former life are the flashes of haunting images that plague his dreams and the echoing voices that he hears, but cannot see. Luckily, Monson finds fast friendship in two of his classmates, Casey and Artorius. Little does Monson know, they too carry their own skeletons. Yet, as bizarre events start to unfold around them, Monson wonders what secrets lay buried in his mind or if he will ever be able to share his true fears with his newfound friends. Join our three heroes as they roam the halls of the most prestigious high school in the country, finding love, mystery, and answers to their algebra homework- all while peeling away the layers of Monson’s shadowy past.

Nothing is a threat to love trust as love distrust. This seems a maxim to others, while others see it as a parable and others simply play it as a feminist game. If we cannot play politics with love, then let us play love with politics. The evil behind the law volume three, no prenuptial agreement, no marriage is a morality play, of two Cameroonian immigrants in America who struggle with the balance of power in their matrimony and the cultural changes in a nation where women control the society and have learnt to say no to male dominated social and marital injustice. The play centered on Mr. Fabrice and Ms. Seraphim is pregnant with humor, local colors, and biblical images, political and civil right debate on both patriarchal and matriarchal societies. Social order seem to fall apart, the civil right ideology of Martin Luther, George Washington and other patriots seem misunderstood, and for this reason call for their reincarnation into history to continue their civil right work.
