Elizabeth, along with her younger brother, Lawrence, is a virtual
slave living on a farm owned by the Forsythes. She depends upon
Charles Forsythe, her cruel master, for everything. He extends his
hold over her by raping her and as a result she becomes pregnant.
It is while she is in hospital giving birth that she glimpses a
life that is possible beyond her miserable existence, mainly
because of the kindness shown to her by a young white male nurse.
Elizabeth has nothing, and even the child, whom she has named
Jordan after the young nurse, is taken from her by the Forsythes
who rename her. Her only hope is Charles' mother, a kind lady who
visits occasionally from England. Over time she realises the state
of affairs and attempts to right the wrongs done to Elizabeth and
her brother. But Elizabeth is not free. A chance meeting with the
nurse, now a doctor, again gives her a glimpse of a different kind
of life, but a different fear holds her back. Will she ever be free
