SOLD!
by Cynthia Marlowe




Overview -

Mary Dove, or Malaga Moll as she is known amongst historians, has been a popular subject of folklore and mystery for decades. Her true story has never been revealed until now. Fully researched and documented, SOLD takes you from the harem of the royal palace of Koch Behar, India, in 1682, and chronicles the incredible journey of a woman who is forced to transform from royalty to slave. Then in the year 1750, in an epic twist where the Royal Narayan family must erase a bloodstain to preserve their kingdom, they come to the aid of their long lost-family members and to the courtrooms of Craven County, North Carolina, where they prove that Mary Dove was a free subject of the maharajas of Koch Behar, India, and therefore could not have been rightfully sold as a slave in the British colonies.

From a yet unexplored perspective, this extensively researched true story documents the incredible lives of three generations and their unusual journey through the institution of slavery. SOLD shows how a deep and enduring love can be found in unexpected places, the violence of jealousy and slavery, the pain of human possession, and the depth of faith and compassion. It reveals the unique turmoil of a proud woman who is sold, but through dignity, strength, and the conviction of her beliefs is never truly a slave, and how she taught her son and granddaughter the spirit of faith, the strength of hope, and belief in the invincible bonds that tie a family together.
