Lina is a lawyer in our current times. She is tasked with finding the descendants of any slave so that they can place a reparations case before the courts.
Chapter by Chapter, you first read Josephine's story and then Lina's story as Josephine makes her break for freedom and Lina finds the descendants of Josephine.
I really enjoyed this book because you were reading two disparate stories at the same time that eventually link up. Josephine is a completely believable slave girl and you feel for her plight. Lina is likewise believable as a lawyer and daughter to a famous artist. Lina learns about her own life as she discovers Josephine's.
