Reviews

'Edgell's subtle portrayal of this slave society's tensions and contradictions is brilliantly imagined, profoundly sympathetic and very moving. This novel rings true. Not only are the facts right, but it also conveys the complexity of human relationships, with compassion and without oversimplification'. O. Nigel Bolland Professor of Caribbean Studies and author of Colonialism and Resistance in Belize'
