Destiny Grey has been sold away from his family, his friends, from everything he has ever known. Having lived a lie for so long, Destiny begins to realize he was never truly free, not even on his father’s farm. Now he must figure out a way to get back to his family before they come to any harm.
Trinity Jones has lived a care-free life on her father’s Rancho in Mexico. She has a dream in her heart to return to the United States and free her mother’s people from bondage, much to the chagrin of her parents. They attempt to warn her of the danger that lies across the border, but she is determined that all her family have liberty.
Tragedy will unite Destiny and Trinity unexpectedly, but will either of them survive it? Freedom lies just across the border in Mexico if they don’t kill each other first.
"Don't you go gettin' yo head full with nonsense, Destiny. You leave here and they will kill you dead," Joshua whispered in his ear.
"And why shouldn't he, Joshua? Ain't you ever wanted to be somethin' more than this?" Micah put in and they both looked at him shocked. He had barely spoken more than three words since he had woken up.
"You keep yo high and mighty ideas to yoself, boy. You may not value yo life but me and Destiny value ours. Right, Destiny?" Destiny looked off to the south again with a look of longing.
"Destiny?" Joshua questioned.
"Mucho gusto. El gusto es mío. Igualmente." The words rolled off his tongue as he practiced them, trying them out. He left his sandwich and his friends where they sat looking at him shocked.
Samuel had asked him once if he wanted something more than what they'd had and he'd never understood what he was asking until now. There was a world out there that was far beyond a haven in the midst of a world which hated them. There was a world out there where they could be free men and have their own country and their own language and their own land and no one would dare try to tear them apart.
