Summary
Tawawa House in many respects is like any other American resort before the Civil War. Situated in Ohio, the idyllic retreat suits the needs of the Southern white men who vacation there every summer with their slave mistresses. Lizzie, Reenie, and Sweet have become friends over the years and share developments in their own lives. They don't bother with questions of freedom, though - until truth-telling Mawu comes to the resort
Summary
Slave mistresses Lizzie, Reenie, and Sweet travel to a resort in Ohio each year with their white masters, until Mawu shows up and encourages them to escape, forcing them to choose between freedom and leaving their friends and families
