The teens of Promise Land were becoming discontented with their lives, especially Daniel and Noah. The two's farms joined each other, and the two best friends often had secret conversations along the property line. As they grew into teenagers, the two realized that this was how the founding fathers envisioned them to live, but they dared not openly question the church elders about it, as this would surely bring harsh punishment upon them. As time passed, more and even younger girls were taken from their families, and sent to the far end of Promise Land to marry older men, leaving a shortage of girls for the younger men to marry, or any man under about forty years old. Noah and Daniel were both nearly eighteen as the story unfolds. Noah had recently been in trouble for trying to save two of his sisters from the same fate as the other young Promise Land girls. However, Noah and his sisters had been caught, and he was whipped in the town square, locked up in the stockade, and flogged for all to see, as an example of what rebellion against the church written laws could bring one. Noah never heard from his two sisters. The two boys hatched a plan to escape Promise Land, taking Noah's twelve year old sister, and Daniel's beautiful fifteen year old girlfriend Faith. However, they both wanted to take along others, but due to circumstances, only Daniel's brother Ezekiel, and his also beautiful seventeen year old married girlfriend Cherish were invited. The escape turned out to be quite an adventure for the six non-world educated runaways. Most everything that could go wrong went wrong. They ended up being prepped for the Far-East slave market. However, fate intervenes and causes an almost unbelievable ending to the story.
