An epic tale of love, family relationships and the barbaric nature of slavery, The Fall of the House of James is the first book in The James Saga.
It follows the forbidden romance between Lawrence James, the son of a plantation owner and Jasmine Thomas, a slave on the Havers End plantation in the fictitious town of Ark Angel in South Carolina in 1860.
Although he is aware of the consequences, Lawrence cannot hold back as his feelings continue to grow as he spends more time with Jasmine.
However, there are other problems for Lawrence. He has been groomed to take over the Havers End plantation, but Lawrence has a deep uneasiness about becoming a slave owner. His position is not helped by his volatile relationship with his father, Edward and what will happen if Edward finds out about his relationship with Jasmine.
There are also concerns over his eldest sister, Belvedere Rossiter, and her growing friendship with a rebellious slave, Donald Archer. While Lawrence loathes Donald, Belvedere has an opposing view.
Lawrences biggest dilemma is - does he choose to be the dutiful son or risk everything to be with Jasmine?
