However, as the daughter of a tribal warrior, Siwhetta is defiant, passionate, and determined to return to her homeland.

Dimitri, on the other hand, enamored of this nubile, ebony beauty is possessive and takes what he wants, and thus far, his eyes are set on Siwhetta. Intent on possessing her, he will stop at nothing to get her into his arms even if it meant breaking every rule in the book.

"Heart of a Slave" by Verna Cyril is a horrific tale of a young, Black female, Siwhetta's experience of being captured by assilants and sold into slavery. The author gives an evocative description of the horrendous and gruesome treatment Siwhetta endured during her journey on the slave ship. What I liked most about the story was how vividly Cyril was able to bring to life the deprivation and afflications Siwhetta faced as a slave. "Heart of a Slave," was a fast paced story filled with twist and turns and it left me wanting to read more. – Ashley Brannon
