Life in the South in 1860s. Black women were taken advantage of sexually by white men. The women could not say, NO!
The author, Lalita, is of the seventh generation down from Elizabeth in a mixed-race family who went through the tough times of slavery and discrimination from as early as the 17th century. It demonstrates the strength of women, so evident nowadays, but it had been so even before. They may have been looked down upon, but they bore the weight of the hard times and made sure that their children were raised right under whatever circumstances.
A good story to draw strength upon.
