"The story of a mulatta woman, a slave and concubine, determined to take control of her own destiny in a society where that would seem impossible"--Provided by publisher. Born into slavery on the island of Saint-Domingue, Zarite, young Tete and her fellow slaves find solace in what remains of the African heritage but when 20-year-old Toulouse Valmorain arrives to the island in 1770, he comes to rely on Tete's servitude. Over the course of four decades, Tete learns of humanity's great potential for both progress and cruelty. The daughter of an African mother she never knew and a white sailor, Zarit - known as Tt - was born a slave on the island of Saint-Domingue. Growing up amid brutality and fear, Tt found solace in the traditional rhythms of African drums and the mysteries of voodoo. Her life changes when twenty-year-old Toulouse Valmorain arrives on the island in 1770 to run his father's plantation, Saint Lazare. Overwhelmed by the challenges of his responsibilities and trapped in a painful marriage, Valmorain turns to his teenaged slave Tt, who becomes his most important confidant. The indelible bond they share will connect them across four tumultuous decades and ultimately define their lives.
