Sinopsis: Snatched from her home in Africa, carried across the sea in a plague-ridden ship, she finds herself standing on the platform of a slave market in the West Indies, on the island of St. John, staring down into a ring of strange white faces. Pointing to her, the auctioneer shouts, “Raisha, the daughter of a sub-chief, comely, strong . . .” From the crowd comes the first bid, then another. Raisha smiles the forced smile she learned on the ship. And so begins her life as a house slave on the plantation of Jost van Prok. “O’Dell weaves worlds out of words. The ending is so powerful, so searing, it will leave readers stunned.” - Publishers Weekly
From the Publisher: The planter who buys you will put you to work in his household or in the sugar-cane fields. In the fields, under the hot sun, slaves don't last long, perhaps a year. So show your white teeth, Raisha, smile a lot, and don't say anything unless you're asked.
Snatched from her home in Africa, sixteen-year-old Raisha begins her new life on the island of St. John's as a slave on Jost van Prok's plantation. Even as a sheltered house servant, Raisha cannot ignore the terrible suffering of other slaves. But is she willing to risk her life to help a group of runaways?
This is a compelling account of the great slave rebellion of 1733, and of one daring young woman's suffering, strength, and ultimate triumph of will.
This is Raisha's story.
