an amazing novel - loved the dialogue, the story-line, the characters, the setting, the perspective.....hope I'm not forgetting anything.
I had this on my to-read list for at least 3 years and am so glad that I finally read it.
horrifying to read about black/brown people being treated as property by members of the white establishment on their island - and the implications of that use and abuse.

Difficult to put down. Entertaining and enlightening. Wonderfully written. Strong female character. Can't recommend it highly enough.

This was a wonderful story. It sheds light on the condition of slavery as the story reveals the main characters experience of slavery. It gives reader insight into the conditions of slaves in the Island of Barbados. This makes a good read during Black History Month.
