Product Description

A New York Times Book Review Best Book of the Year. Toni Morrison conjures up the beautiful, untamed lawless world that was America in the 17th century. In the 1680s, the slave trade in the Americas is still in its infancy. Jacob Vaarkis an Anglo-Dutch trader and adventurer, with a small holding in the harsh North. Despite his distaste for dealing in 'flesh,' he takes a small slave girl in part payment for a bad debt from a plantation owner in Catholic Maryland. This is Florens, who can read and write and might be useful on his farm. Rejected by her mother, Florens looks for love, first from Lina, an older servant woman, and later from a free African blacksmith, who comes riding into their lives.
