Emma is the property of Pierce Butler and has taken care of his daughters, Sarah and Frances, since their mother left home. Emma wants to raise the girls to have good hearts, like their mother's, as a rift in morals has ripped the Butler household apart: Sarah and her mother oppose the inhumanity of slavery, while Frances and her father believe in the Southern lifestyle and treatment of blacks.
