'A beautiful and important book' The Times

On the day that Jacob, an Anglo-Dutch trader, agrees to accept a slave in lieu of payment for a debt from a plantation owner, little Florens's life changes irrevocably.


With her keen intelligence and passion for wearing the cast-off shoes of her mistress, Florens has never blurred into the background and now at the age of eight she is uprooted from her family to begin a new life with a new master. She ends up part of Jacob's household, along with his wife Rebekka, Lina their Native American servant, and the enigmatic Sorrow who was rescued from a shipwreck.

Together these women face the trials of their harsh environment as Jacob attempts to carve out a place for himself in the brutally unforgiving landscape of North America in the seventeenth century.

‘Toni Morrison is the greatest chronicler of the American experience that we have ever known’ Tayari Jones, New York Times

The issues Morrison explores go to the root of what humanity is. They could not be more importantLeft me trembling at the sheer brilliance of its storytelling and the unassailable dignity of its purposeSo enthralling that you'll want to read it more than once
