Time and the River (Caribbean Writers Series) by Zeet Edgell

This is a new addition to the Caribbean Writers Series from award-winning author, Zee Edgell. Time and the River is about freedom and slavery, hope and betrayal. It tells the story of people who don't won their own land or time, or even their own bodies. Leah Lawson is the daughter of a slave owner and a slave woman in Belize. In dreaming of a better future, Leah must make some difficult choices. Her life takes drastic turns, change her from slave into mistress, and forcing her to take the lives of her family and best friend into her own hands.

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'
