Suzanne LaGrande speaks with author Trisha Thomas about her latest book, What Passes as Love.
Set in antebellum Virginia, What Passes as Love tells the story of Dahlia Holt, a light-skinned black woman who works as a servant in the home of a large slave owner who is in fact her father, waiting on his daughters who are also her sisters.
Among other things Trisha Thomas talks about:
How she got started as a writer
Her nine book Nappily Book series, one of which was made into a Netflix movie.
The photograph of three sisters that lead her to write the novel
How love is similar but also different at present
How the past history of slavery in the U.S has continued at present.
