Sinossi

Abraham Lucien Gilbert Daigre.
The son of socialites, Gilbert Daigre and Mary Caroline Bird Daigre, and heir to the Mulberry Grove Plantation estate located along the Mississippi River in East Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He is the descendent of the highly respectable Bird and Bowie clan, two of the largest slaveholding families, of East and West Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Although Abraham Lucien Gilbert was groomed to take his father’s place and began his own legacy as a plantation owner, in his mind he felt that marriage should not be prearranged and felt justified for his ideology. He did not feel compelled to marry anyone of privileged just because of legacy which was contrary to southern aristocracy.


Louisa Culverson.
Louisa Culverson was raised by her mother, Anna, and her grandfather Peter, both free octoroon farmers in the outskirts of District 52, Randolph County, Virginia. Because of her skin color, Louisa was recognized as an octoroon, allowing her to pass as White, but lived in constant fear of prosecution if she ever ventured within certain areas of District 52, or Beverly Township (also located in Randolph County).

Although free, she was still labeled as not able to explore and often referred to as a second-class citizen. She wanted to be accepted, to be a person able to accomplish her hopes and dreams. However, she knew that in order to not be labeled she would have to leave her family and farm, leave Randolph District 52, and explore outside of her present world. Louisa dared to dream and she believed she deserved a world that offered her so much more, a world of color, a world in which she could live, learn, and grow--a world far away from Randolph District 52.

Along the way their paths would cross disregarding their differences and merging their worlds.

However, would their love be strong enough to endure the injustices of the Civil War and southern aristocracy?

This is their story.
