Olivia, Mourning

Olivia wants the 80 acres in far off Michigan that her father left to whichever of his offspring stakes a claim. As Olivia says, "I'm sprung off him just as much as Avis or Tobey."
The problem: she's seventeen, female, and it's 1841.

Her childhood friend Mourning Free knows how to work a farm and Olivia has complete trust in him.The problem: he's the orphaned son of runaway slaves and reluctant to travel and work with a white girl. He especially fears the slave catchers who patrol the free states, hunting fugitive slaves.

Not without qualms, they set off together. All goes well, despite the drudgery of survival in an isolated log cabin. Incapable of acknowledging her feelings for Mourning, Olivia thinks her biggest problem is her unrequited romantic interest in their young, single neighbor.

Then her world falls apart.

Strong-willed, vulnerable, and compassionate, Olivia is a compelling protagonist on a journey to find a way to do the right thing in a world in which so much is wrong.

They set out together, not without hesitation. Despite the hardships of surviving in a remote log cabin, everything goes smoothly. Olivia believes that her unfulfilled romantic interest in their young, single neighbor is the root of her problems, as she is unable to acknowledge her feelings for Mourning.

Over all, the book was worth it, but I also tried to find it on other platforms too, but I didn't get it. I think this should get published on other online platforms like Apple Books, Kindle, Pothi, and Shabd.in so it can reach more people.
Relax I will not reveal the spoiler part. haha! enjoy it!
