Love, war, tradition-each one is a cage. Will Emily never have the freedom to realize the dream shes held since childhood? Emily Preston wants only to become an artist. As the nation teeters on the brink of civil war, she must wage her own battle against the restrictive ideology of her father. Women belong at home on the plantation beneath the watchful eye of a husband or father--NOT at a university. But several schools in the North have opened their doors to women. How can she make him see just how much it means to her to study under a master? Independence isnt the only contentious point between them. A recent visit to her uncles home in Detroit has called Emilys entire upbringing into question, but her father doesnt appreciate her criticisms of his management of Ella Wood, the Preston family plantation. As Emilys eyes continue to open to the evils of slavery, she begins to understand Northern objections, but the thought of armed conflict scares her speechless. And if war were to break out, how would it affect her future plans? Then theres the problem of Thaddeus Black, the handsome, charming young man who simply wont take no for an answer. Her resolve weakens a little further each time she turns him away. It could be that the real fight lies within her heart, which stubbornly refuses to accept that a choice for independence must be a choice against love. "Poetic" and "nuanced," Ella Wood is the story of a young woman standing at the edge of war and struggling with questions of morality, purpose, and love.
