Etta and her mother are house servants to the Wilsons, master and mistress of an island plantation. Etta has been allowed to go to the mainland to help her grandmother, a freed slave, but she's called back to the island when her mother's sent away from the Main House in disgrace. They must adapt to the life of farmhands among their Geechee family and friends. Etta grows in appreciation for her history and culture, and finds her place as she learns about conjuring, medicinal plants, the ring shout, and her own ancestry.
