When white slave traders raid fifteen-year-old Amari's remote village her life will never be the same. Abducted and sold to a plantation owner in the Carolinas, Amari is forced to endure strenuous plantation work and daily degradations. As she struggles to hold onto her identity she falls into hopelessness and despair, but Amari holds onto hope that one day she will regain her freedom. Finally when an opportunity presents itself Amari must work together with a white indentured servant named Polly if she means to escape. Sweeping in scope and penetrating in detail, Copper Sun is an unforgettable tale of those who live together on a plantation and slavery in America.
