Song of Slaves in the Desert
Location(s): Mali, Timbuktu
“The Legacy of Slavery
The Loyalty of Family
The Lure of Love”
He has no history in the rice fields, no background in being a master. Plantations are as foreign to him as the African plain that birthed the slaves his uncle owns. Surely, though, he knows his own heart. She has no say in his decisions, his day, his life. She doesn’t even have a say in her own. But when Nathaniel Pereira plunges into the murky mysteries of freedom and survival in the suffocating Southern heat, Liza can see how she might change her life forever.
Tracing the thread of slavery from sixteenth-century Timbuktu, “Song of Slaves in the Desert “explores one man’s struggle to understand a world where honor is in short supply yet dignity cannot be sold. His mission in peril, his mind nearly undone, Nathaniel’s obsession binds him to his fate more tightly than chains ever could.
