Sunday come tomorrow,’ I say, and turn to open jalousie blinds. How I find it within me to speak gently, I don’t know. Hens cackle below bedchamber, rooting around clutches of eggs. Hens cackle below bedchamber, rooting around clutches of eggs ister Sam’s hammock, slung between two cottonwood trees. Stretching arms skyward, he yawns sleepily. Dawn glows golden orange. Blue sea. ‘Yu must mek yu will, Mister Sam,’ I say. He flinches horribly. Kaydie, Kaydie, help me,’ he moans. Is it heaven awaits me?’. Church minister e can ansa yu da. Are they coming, my cousin, Demar and Carey?’

Fish moves among the characters' voices - formal and Victorian for Elizabeth, ess pidgin for Kaydia and Sheba - with consummate ease, and the narrative grips like mystery thriller.

Fish moves among the characters' voices - formal and Victorian for Elizabeth, ess pidgin for Kaydia and Sheba - with consummate ease, and the narrative grips like mystery thriller. This excellent book is worthy of comparison with Jean Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea, which it echoes, and deserves to reach a large and appreciative audience.

In Laura Fish's ambitious and captivating novel, three very different women struggle for freedom. While Elizabeth Barrett Browning is confined to bed, chafing against the restriction of her doctors and writing poetry and fretful letters, at her family's Jamaican estate Kaydia, the Creole housekeeper, tries to protect her daughter from their predatory master; and a recently freed black slave, Sheba, mourns the loss of her lover.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning is confined to bed, chafing against the restriction of her doctors and writing poetry and fretful letters; while at her family’s Jamaican estate Creole housekeeper Kaydiatries to protect her daughter from their predatory master, and a recently freed black slave, Sheba, mourns the loss of her lover. As Elizabeth, a passionate abolitionist, struggles to come to terms with the source of her wealth and privilege, both Sheba and Kaydia fight to escape a tragic past which seems ever present.Laura Fish's use ofletters excavatedfrom the Barrett archivesas well as island dialects result in an extraordinary evocation of the dark side of the 19th century that is both horrifying and ultimately redeeming.
