Description

Written in the anticipation of the 2007 Bicentenary of the Abolition of Slavery in Britain and British Ships, this book is the story of a courageous black girl kidnapped by slavers in1800. She dressed as a boy to avoid rape and, after a horrific ocean crossing and years of hard labour in the Demerara plantations, her cruel aristocratic owner sent her to his Bristol home to be educated as his wife and servant. About to be freed by her kindly mistress, she was pressed into the Royal Navy where she excelled perilous duties of a topman and found acceptance on the lower deck. Serving on "Victory" at Trafalgar, she survived and returned to her homeland to find it devastated. Failing to save her brother during the Demerara Slave rebellion, she loses her life to vicious attackers.
