A letter is sent. A memory is awakened. An ancient lullaby is sung, and a genetic thread that tethers all characters together resounds through time and space. Through the heirloom coin of an African queen, a story is woven, embracing a unique history, rhythm, and language. Out of the diversity of bloods and mixed passions, each descendant has unbreakable perseverance of the human spirit. From the kidnapping of an African princess, to the streets of Liverpool, to being a strong force in the abolitionist movement, to suffering unspeakable whippings and subsequent imprisonment in an Australian penal colony, to becoming respectable Sydney citizens, to experiencing a chilling family massacre, and through the plagues of two world wars, the family heirloom continues to be handed down and worn. This epic of ancestry--the Mbundu people--a lullaby, and a coin finally appear to reach their destined journey. Yet another surprise unfolds in the upcoming Rufina.
