Water to My Soul ~ Paperback ~ Pamela Bauer Mueller
Teenaged Eliza Lucas, better suited for the drawing rooms at Drayton Hall than the sun-baked fields of Wappoo Plantation, fought and overcame grief, treachery, and an impossible love. Indefatigable in purpose and energy, she was able to provide the struggling new colonies in a critical time with a staple cropindigo--saving the faltering economy and bracing it for the battle for sovereignty. Her strong will and streak of independence extended beyond the business world and into her personal life. Updated .
