Novels by E. MH Ratterman


I just had to share this!


Novels by E. MH Ratterman


I, Slave: 1746-1963


. . . is an historical fictional novel filled with the realities of life's struggles and hardships. It is a story of faith, hope, and determination, during tumultuous times; of adventure, challenge, and success; of romance, love, and the joys of youthful courtship. This literary work’s tale transcends the cultural, political, social, and racial dialogue of a time during our world’s history wished forgotten. Captivity and slavery, Chicago’s underground tunnels and criminal organizations, New York youth gangs, historic wars, and idealistic dreams, all fill the hearts and minds of those individuals found within the pages of this poignant work.

Across the Horizons of the Seven Seas . . .
From 1746 Liverpool, England through the beginnings of the Civil Rights Movement in 20th century America, this account follows the life of a youthful slave, Bullahah, and his progeny. We begin during a time when the sale of fellow humans was a normal and lucrative global activity. This controversial period of history strikes hard at humanity's heart, soul, and conscience, and of what it means to be a human being.

Join the obscure maritime world of slaving sailors as they sail the seas, many in the basest of jobs. Some are in search of fortune, while others simply desire better lives across the ocean in the New World. Colorful pirates and adventurous ship captains fill and romanticize our minds, while brutal floggings, extreme disciplinary actions, harsh labor conditions and the pit-and-gallows judgments, terrify our 21st century contemporary understanding.

Travel back to the days when the work ethics and lifestyles forged what it meant to be a human being; back to a time when the friendships one formed and nurtured created bonds that would last a lifetime.
