Sijuan King, debut author of Millennium Slave has told a truly amazing story. What starts out as a getaway cruise to a Caribbean island for Charles Allen Hart and Trudy Henderson turns out to be an unbelievable nightmare. Wined and dined then locked up in a cage for transport to an island that time seems to have forgotten. An island where slavery is the norm and where the inhabitants of the island do not know that it is no longer the the late 1800's. The story is an interesting look at what slavery was like and how the greed of the white men portrayed perpetuated the continuation of black slavery as it was. The story is told in court where Charles is on trial for attempted murder and kidnapping. A story that most people would find impossible to believe. I am not sure if I would believe if someone told me something like this. Is Charles guilty or not guilty?? Well I guess we will have to read Part II to find out. I for one definitely look forward to reading the rest of the story. Sijuan King is a gifted storyteller. I enjoyed this book immensely and highly recommend it be read by all people no matter what their race.
