Have a Heart
This two-part novel shows how good eventually triumphs over evil, even if the evil gets the punishment hundreds of years later.
Part One of the novel dramatizes the tragic life of tobacco plantation slave, Loder Alleyn, which contrasts ironically with that of wealthy, lascivious but likeable slaver, Granville-Throgmorton, as their lives interweave.
Part Two is set in modern times and weaves together the initially parallel lives of Granville-Throgmorton’s descendant, Clifford Granville, and Frank Allen from the original Loder Alleyn family. Their paths cross at the point of the tragic climax of the novel.
The novel is a unique social commentary on human exploitation through the slave trade of the 1800s and illicit organ trafficking of the 21st century.
