Fate & Freedom – Book I, The Middle Passage reveals the story of two African children, Margarita and Juan, captured during the Portuguese invasion of the Kingdom of Ndongo, high in the mountains of Angola. The year is 1619. Brutally, they are enslaved and shipped some seven thousand miles away to their doom in the silver mines of Mexico. But, before the slaver can reach its destination the ship is pirated by two English corsairs and the children’s fate is set in motion by the Calvinist Reverend turned Privateer, Captain John Jope. Their new destination becomes a small English settlement in the New World which will eventually become known as America.

Until recent years their true story was shrouded in mystery.  It was simply told that a Dutch captain transported “twenty and odd” Africans to the shores of Virginia. Now, intense research has uncovered their true identities, the tragic fate which brought them to America, and the cover-up perpetrated to shroud their arrival.   Knight, a genealogist, traces the steps of the first Africans to arrive in English America, revealing a heartfelt and powerful story that was lost in the ashes of our history.
