year old Raisha is looking forward to becoming the wife of Konje one day.
They are too young to marry now but Raisha knows the time will come. Unfortunately,
the slave traders come first and kidnap the two young people and take them
to the Caribbean Island of St. John. Here, Raisha is renamed Angelica and
force to work for the plantation owner's wife. For those of you who think
this type of thing only happened in America, you may be interested to read
about slavery in other countries.
