L.H. Hjalmarson is author of "Volume 10 - To Paint A Sunrise"
Six-year-old Liza has little understanding of her status as a slave. Naturally eager to please, she has lived in the grand plantation house of Norbury Estate and been treated as the doll of the planter’s daughter for as long as she can remember. As 1862 rolls along, however, and tensions surrounding slavery come to a head outside of New Orleans, Louisiana, Liza finds herself transformed into a symbol in a brave campaign to prove that the significance of skin colour runs little deeper than a coat of paint.
