Cecile lives in Quebec in the early 1700s.  She and her father are going to Fort Detroit but while they are still in Quebec, Cecile witnesses a site that horrifies her.  An Indian slave is being branded by his owner.  To save the young man from more torture, Cecile buys Lesharo and grants him his freedom.  But Lesharo travels to Detroit with Cecile and her father.  Along the way, they learn much about each other and about their different cultures.   But what will happen when they take up residence at Fort Detroit.  Will others see Lesharo as an equal?  Or as a slave?
