Madu, a young African, is captured by the English slave-trader Sir John Hawkins. Tom Oakley is a young sailor in charge of the slaves. At first, the two boys hate each other. But as the story develops, their roles are reversed, and they become closer friends than either would have once believed possible.
Brings an already captivating story to life

Though hard to listen to as far as all the cruelty, especially to the captured slaves, it is historically accurate. The author has an easy voice to listen to and tells the story well. The creative license he took with some parts only made it that much more interesting.
