Read the following excerpt from chapter one:
He grabbed my arm and pulled me roughly to my feet. “I told you to move,” Mr. Robert snarled at me.
“Apologies, sir” I said, wincing with pain.
He released me with a shove and pointed to the cemetery where they buried white people. “Go pray for her that
owned you, girl.”
