"Mother was lying down, throwing up on her own, once sweet-smelling, clothes, whereas Father sat up, comforting me."
Blessing was only five when she was pulled on a ship, ready to be used as a slave when she grew up.
When Blessing is chosen to become a servant for a young girl, named Elizabeth, Blessing can't believe her luck! But, when Blessing says something to make Elizabeth want to leave, should she stick with what she wants, or fight for Elizabeth to stay with her?
Follow her, as she suffers arguments, love, and of course the ups and downs of slavery.
