I’m seventeen, and a new transplant to Carolina. I grew up in Antigua and was educated in London; my family moved to the New World last year. My father immediately had to return to Antigua, and put me in charge of his three plantations, all his servants and overseers, and my sick mother and sister. It’s been a lot for a teenage girl to handle, but I’m enjoying the scope...
