'Emotions run deep and twisted in Morrison's fiction; and their outcome is superbly traced in this powerful novel' - Sunday Telegraph
BY THE NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF BELOVED
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.

Winner of the PEN/Saul Bellow award for achievement in American fiction
