Wise beyond her years, Miss Francine is a twelve-year-old slave girl in Richmond, Virginia, the capital of the Confederacy during the Civil War. She endures the hardships of bondage as well as the oddity of being privately treated as a daughter by her mentally ill white mistress. She dreams of finding her real mother and eventually marrying her fiance after the war.
