An unlikely trio unites during the Civil War. Noni, ripped from Africa, lives an unimaginable life of slavery in the American South. When her daughter, Efuru, is threatened, they run away, meeting Abby, a kidnapped white girl. Efuru and Abby become fast friends. They grow, struggling with family, prejudice and dysfunction, as their relationship changes through tragedy, betrayal and love. Heaven's Daughter invites us to examine how we work to deceive ourselves...and the consequences.
