But everything changes when her little brother finds a secret way out of the valley. Alma sets out to find him but soon has to face terrible dangers in a continent ravaged by the violence and horrors of the slave trade. The journey to bring her brother home quickly becomes a thrilling adventure to save herself, her family, and the memory of her people.
