The events chronicled here give insight into the lives of a family who made the transition from slavery to property ownership only to discover a different form of enslavement. It is a tale of triumph, greed, malicious intent, fraudulent oppression, and debatable wisdom. The Wolfe's family was battered by tragedy. They tried to live above the fray and the evil devices of those that surrounded them, but they found their lives bogged down in the very mire they tried so hard to avoid. Those who were to protect and guide them were the ones scheming and undermining their efforts. Thus, they were forced to view the world from an angle of distrust, dismay, and disgust. A message of hope and triumph is also conveyed in this grueling tale of woe, madness, and corruption. The foundation of this novel is truth, although much of the contents are fictionalized for drama. It is a tale that mirrors fiction, borders on reality, and is life like in one's imagination. It bears resemblance to one's self; mimics our friends and acquaintances, yet defies truth. Adelphi is a plantation village found off the Atlantic Ocean on the northern edge of the British colony of South America. It is in this little village that the Wolfe's family gained most of their life experiences; acquiring the resilience needed to meet the demands of their travel along life's road.
