Sam is thrilled to find the wife the Lord has given him until he finds out she's a mulatto slave, albeit a beautiful one. Will he accept this gift from God, or will he let his prejudices stand in the way of his happiness? Becca neither looks nor talks like a slave, but she is one nonetheless. After being raised by a loving massa and missus, she's sold to Willow Bend where she faces hardships in the life of a slave she never knew existed. Should she allow her virginity to be stolen from her or should she give it to Sam instead? Fact: In the mid-1800's, a white woman was sold at the Cheapside Slave Market in Lexington, Ky. Her name was Eliza, she was 1/64 African decent, and the daughter of the slaveholder who sold her. She was purchased by the Methodist Church, who outbid a New Orleans slave trader, and set free.
