Due Unto: Denmark Vesey's Story by K. F. Jones is a stunning tale of a dystopian world not of the future, but of the past. A past where slavery endures even as a new nation breaks free from its colonial bonds.

Driven by survival, secrets, love, war, scandal and revenge inspired by real people and actual events-the characters strive for what they see as rightfully theirs to conflicting ends. None can be right if they are all wrong.

Denmark is a Ewe African enslaved on an uncharted Caribbean atoll with a French widow as his owner and teacher during the American Revolution. Throughout the ensuing decades Denmark struggles to consummate love and achieve liberty amid the randomness of slavery.

When everything he holds dear is threatened Denmark must ultimately answer the question, what extremes will he go to protect his family, his life?
