Summary

In 1789, Mo’destee Vert was a Senegambia teenager, in love and happier than ever as she gets ready to become an adult. Everything changes when white strangers speaking a foreign language attack their village. After a grueling voyage across the ocean, she finds herself labeled Modesty Greene, slave. She becomes the property of Robert Banks, a plantation owner in Dorchester County, Maryland. At night, she dreams of her home in Afrika. She longs to see her brother and parents, but mostly she misses the man that never became her husband. Modesty just wants to be happy and normal. Will becoming a mother and moving to a new plantation be better or worse? At least she will be far away from Robert Banks. Years later, Araminta Ross, AKA Harriet Tubman, is born a third-generation slave, a curious child with a unique relationship with God. She dreams of a different life. Could she be brave enough to set out in the dark and follow stars to freedom? History says yes.
