**Received from Goodreads first reads.

This is such a well written book and an obvious labor of love from the Author. This book is also dense with history. It is obvious that the Author did a tremendous amount of research prior to writing this book. Not just research about her family but research on migration, life onboard a boat/ship, life of the endendured servent, slave trade, life of a slave, and life on Barbados. This is not a fast read. The amount of information that is presented does take some time to get through, but it is worth the time and effort.
