Black Swan: A Novel : A Black Novella Collection (Book 2 of #3)
by Drew Andrews
“She was the lady. It was as if, by the magic wand of a fairy, she had suddenly been transformed into a different being, a being endowed with the power to conquer the world.”
Emily Saunders is an eccentric woman with a secret and painful past; a past she will never cease to hide and run from throughout passing years.
Raised a bastard child of a poverishly poor black family, late 1800's, a living product of her mother’s weakness for the white man, she is crucified by circumstances far beyond her control.
Strikingly beautiful is Emily, the envy of all men, her soft and light complexion resembling more of the white woman she dreams to be one day than the Negro blood her pumping heart must escape.
Wishing to one day be a pillar of the white-class, she inevitably becomes the BLACK SWAN of the family, and an unworthy outcast to the local black community.
Ridiculed for acting white, dressing white, looking white, and talking white. Branded a black woman in sheep’s clothing.
Her mind is clear and decided. She must find a new identity in womanhood; but at what cost? To what extremes will she go to satisfy her cravings for glamour, financial wealth, and acceptance? Will she ever find the happiness to soothe her broken heart? Is the grass ever green enough?
