Summary
Enduring the peculiarities and brutalities of plantation life in the nineteenth-century West Indies, the morally blind Englishwoman Emily Cartwright finds her life touched by the experiences of Cambridge, a devoutly Christian slave. Reprint.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: One of England's most widely acclaimed young novelists adopts two eerily convincing narrative voices and juxtaposes their stories to devastating effect in this mesmerizing portrait of slavery. Cambridge is a devoutly Christian slave in the West Indies whose sense of justice is both profound and self-destructive, while Emily is a morally-blind, genteel Englishwoman.
