Debt (Web Serial)

b1339-prod_940

For a debt he owes, a thirteen year old girl’s father gives her away to an older man she doesn’t know, while her pleas fall on the ears of a mother that has no voice or power to change their condition. This story is of Syreeta and her struggle to be more than just an owed debt.

The historian records, but the novelist creates.- E. M. Forster

 I set this story in 1906 the year of my grandmother’s birth, it’s loosely based on my great grandmother’s life in the rural Tennessee. Yet more than 100 hundred years later we are faced with the same issue. I dedicate this story to the women and girls who still don’t have a voice in their lives.

Below are the short snips of the continuing story so you can follow Syreeta’s journey.
