Summary
Wendy O'hanlon, Acres, Australia OMG!!! When I started reading this novel, I thought another sad slave trading historical piece that would make you hate humanity...again. Actually, and having the author's amazing biography at hand, I had hoped for better. And so it was. Obviously, the author writes not just fiction but from many real encounters with peoples and cultures from whom she has met and experienced in her incrtedible life (Why is there not an autobiography in the wings, I ask?). Enter Joshua, the captain of a great sailing slave ship. In his slave-trading work, Joshua befriends a number of slave Africans (and he takes Nagamba for his wife). He is one of many whites who consider these slaves as humans, their friends and family. He sets up his own sugar plantation and tresats these slaves as workers with dignity - all the time aware of the culture that persists without. I found this novel compelling, beautifully written and such a positive happy, 'We shall conquer all' story that is not usually in these works of slavery. I actually enjoyed the read. Hope had sprung! Next, Ms author I want to read about you!
