Trials & Tribulations of Modesty Greene
A fictional novel about Harriet Tubman’s historical legacy
In 1789 Mo’destee Vert was a Senegambia teenager, in love with her fiancé, Jabari. On the brink of becoming an adult, she finds herself happier than she’s ever been. Everything changes when white strangers speaking a foreign language attack their village. After a grueling and heartbreaking voyage across the ocean, she finds herself labeled Modesty Greene and is nothing more than a female slave, bought and paid for by Robert Banks, a plantation owner in Dorchester County, Maryland, America. At night, she dreams of her home in Afrika. She longs to see her brother and parents, but mostly she misses the man that never became her husband.
Modesty just wants to be happy and normal. She seeks out a friendship with the massa’s daughter, Ethel as well as a stable hand with beautiful eyes and a kind heart. Could she find happiness with Salih? Could becoming a mother and moving to new plantation be a better alternative than the hell she’s been living in? Or will it be worse? At least she will be far away from Robert Banks.
Her daughter, Harriet, arrives and her life changes again. In no time Little Rit is having children of her own. With a heavy heart, Modesty can’t help but wonder if her grandchildren will be born black, or white. Either way, Modesty’s legacy begins as the generations continue. Lil Rit’s fifth daughter, Araminta, grows up to become Harriet Tubman. With dreams of freedom her entire life, Araminta is curious when she learns of a system nicknamed the Underground Railroad that takes black slaves across borders to freer states. Could she be brave enough to set out in the dark and follow stars to freedom?
