Seffie began life as a slave, companion to a sickly white girl and privileged to learn to read and write and even speak French. But her life of relative comfort is about to come to an end. Loss and tragedy work hard to drive the joy from Seffie's heart, but she has a drive of her own: to seek a new life in the North. But even if she succeeds, can her guarded heart learn to love again--or is it too late?
