Harriet Hemings has always been happy in the comfortable, protected world that is Monticello. She’s been well treated there; no one has ever called her a slave. But that is what she is, a slave of a man who wrote the Declaration of Independence. And there are rumors that she might be more than Thomas Jefferson’s slave – she might be his daughter.
Now Harriet has to make a choice – to run to freedom or stay. If she stays, she’ll remain a slave. But how can she choose freedom, if it means leaving behind her family, her rave, and the only home she’s ever known?
