I have never read any books by Andrea Levy before, so when recomended by the library I should read this....so I took there advice.

The well-written story tells of the main charachter's life during just after slavery ended. This book reads like a song, beautiful & moving, powerful and full of the human spirit. A slave woman tells her story in the bests traditions of storytelling. It is lyrical and expressive so dynamic one page your laughing a next touched and moved another you're just horrified. This book takes you into and another world and time, I would recommend book to anyone
