When the news of travelers reached Amari’s village, there was much celebration. They didn’t know what the pale visitors wanted, however. Amari is captured and taken away from her village, and sold into slavery. All seems lost for Amari, but as the other slaves remind her, “Long as you remember, it ain’t never gone.”
This book was a very good read, and gives you a better look at what the slaves had to go through. If you enjoy historical fiction, you’ll love this book.
