Om boka




In this heart-stopping adventure based on real historical
events, Kereen Getten takes readers on a journey of sisterhood, struggle
and survival from Jamaica to Britain.
'She was rarely afraid, and even if she was ... she
still stood her ground, because Ruth never faltered in what she
believed in.'


Ruth and Anna are inseparable.



Ruth has always known her half-sister isn't like her
- her almost-white skin means she is allowed certain things
that Ruth can only dream of.




Anna wishes she could be braver, like her sister, Ruth.
But she has had to live with the fact that the smallest mistake
would land not only her in danger, but Ruth and their mother,
too.



When Ruth and Anna are shipped off to Master John's home in London
for their safety, it isn't the haven they imagined. Their differences
force them apart - Anna is allowed to stay upstairs
while Ruth is banished to the servants' quarters and is forced
to work.


With whispers of freedom on the city's streets, will Anna find
the courage to stand up for Ruth before it's too late?
