Joseph Belifonte, a twelve-year-old boy, travels to Lisbon, Portugal with his parents and younger sister, Gracia. However, after eight months, Joseph and Gracia, along with hundreds of other Jewish children, are kidnapped. They are put on a ship and taken to the island of Sao Tomé, off the coast of West Africa. They are forcibly baptized and worked as slaves on the sugar plantation. This historical novel tells their story.
