In the fields, under the hot sun, slaves dont last long, perhaps a year. So show your white teeth, Raisha, smile a lot, and dont say anything unless youre asked.Snatched from her home in Africa, sixteen-year-old Raisha begins her new life on the island of St. Johns as a slave on Jost van Proks 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 womans suffering, strength, and ultimate triumph of will.This is Raishas story.
