Before Sonny is a year old, he loses his mother on Christmas night when she is sold. He is sent to live in the chillun house where he is befriended by a deaf mute and the plantation's stableman. This saga of triumph over privation and abuse presents new insights into the lives of the Westfall slaves who appeared in Stanard's two previous novels, Kedzie, Saint Helena Island Slave and Master of Westfall.
