May book group met at the home of Virginia Felker and discussed 'The Indigo Girl' by Natasha Boyd. It's set between 1739 and 1744 in rural South Carolina. The story revolves around Eliza Lucas a sixteen year old who is left in charge of their family's three plantations. Her father last left to pursue his career and has left their estates heavily encumbered. Eliza learns how much the French pay for indigo dye, and believes it may be the key to the family's salvation. The quandary is that no one will share the secret to making it. The true story is based on historical documents.
