Abstract:

"Two worlds, connected by the insult of slavery, are explored in this powerful novel: the Caribbean plantation hierarchy in its every shade of prejudice; and England, at a time when the abolition of slavery was official, but London "bird and beast shops" still sold African children like pets. It is a shocking and unforgettable account of inhumanity - of a self-pronounced Christian nation resistant to black religious conversion because all people might suddenly recognise that they were equal under God"--Publisher's website.
