She would be sold to the highest bidder. There she stood in the center of a group of leering plantation owners, her once beautiful clothes in rags. Unjustly convicted of theft, Verity had been thrown into Newgate Prison, then shipped to Virginia to be sold as a slave. She had been stripped of all but her pride.
