Linda's mistress, the daughter of her grandmothers mistress was nourished from Aunt Martha's (grandmother's) breast as well as Linda's mother. The young mistress was the foster sister of Linda, they spend their childhood together and played together as if they were normal siblings. By the age of six, from the talk around her Linda learns as a child that she is a slave. So when Linda gets older she has to serve her foster sister and the relationship changes.
