Summary Dana, a young black writer, can't explain how she is transported across time and space from her loving home in 1970s California to a plantation in Maryland. But she does quickly understand why: to deal with the troubles of Rufus, a conflicted white slaveholder - and her progenitor. Her survival, her very existence, depends on it.
