“A tale of two sugar plantations on Barbados before and after the abolition of slavery. … Characters of all races are fully fleshed out as Willig confronts the island's complex racial dynamics, in particular the sexual exploitation of enslaved women and its consequences. A deep dive into Caribbean history which requires, and ultimately rewards, close reading.” – Kirkus

Lauren Willig is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than twenty works of historical fiction, including the recent Band of Sisters about a group of Smith graduates who volunteered to help French villages devastated by war during WWI. The recipient of multiple awards, Lauren Willig has a graduate degree in history from Harvard and a JD from Harvard Law School.
