The Call of ZulinaMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
‘Grace Winslow, the daughter of a mixed marriage between an English sea captain and an African princess, is swept up in a slave revolt after she escapes the family compound to avoid an odious betrothal.’ Publisher
This is a novel that will have you shocked, disgusted and horrified if you haven’t heard the background to the slave trade before – or even if you have!. The author has used known facts to weave this story that had me gripped from start to finish. Grace’s parents are both tyrants in their own spheres and Grace has been brought up in ignorance of the source of her families wealth. When she joins the slaves in Zulina the slave prison, the story moves to an exciting conclusion and some sort of happy ending. The characters, good and bad, portrayed here may be fictitious but they have a distinct ring of truth about them.
