Brazil was divided into fifteen captaincies under the reign of D. Joao III. Clarinha, daughter of the Captain of one of the greatest Captaincies, never really got a say on anything. Her life was planned out for her even before she was born into it. Every move. Every thought. None of it was her own. But everything changed when she heard coarse, hushed voices in the middle of the night. Nothing was the same as soon as she left her bed. She made her decision before she realized she had gotten one, and suddenly, everything began to change. A tragic yet heartwarming story about a teenage girl trying to find herself in a world that wants to control her. Based on real history, this novel will move and inspire readers."
