A new novel by Jane Harris is well worth the wait.

Her first novel, The Observations was nominated for the Orange Prize and her second, Gillespie & I, published four years later was another hit. Sugar Money is set to become as well loved as her previous works. Based on a little-known true story, Sugar Money is a heart-breaking trip into our troubled colonial past, and a stunning act of literary ventriloquism, as we follow two slave brothers sent on a dangerous mission from Martinique to Grenada to recover the forty-two slaves their French master claims were stolen by English invaders.
