This novel tells the story of a young female slave who decides to run away, and the modern-day lawyer who comes upon her story while researching a potential lawsuit.
This book is divided into alternating chapters for the two main characters. At first I was more interested in the story of the slave but as the book progressed , I became engrossed in the lawyer’s story also. There are a couple of little mysteries that I thought I had figured out but I was surprised by the way everything ended up. I enjoyed this book.
