Due to no interaction with other African-Americans, she totally embraces the stereotypical views placed upon Black Americans. She is taken back in time to experience first hand the cruelty of slavery, racism, and prejudice. The views Kiera held pertaining to African-Americans caused disappointment in her parents and anger in other relatives. Determined to live the superficial lifestyle she had become accustomed to, Kiera decided to distance herself even further--to end her relationship with her family members. But fate, however, would not allow such drastic steps to be taken. Lifting the veil that had blinded her for so long, fate decided to reveal to her the truth that had for so long eluded her.
