In exchange for a bad debt, an Anglo-Dutch trader takes on Florens, a young slave girl, who feels abandoned by her slave mother and who searches for love--first from an older servant woman at her master's new home, and then from a handsome free blacksmith.

1993 winner.
Set in the new South Africa and in an Arab village in the desert, this is a gripping tale of contemporary anguish and unexpected desire from a Nobel Prize-winning writer. - See more at: http://multcolib.bibliocommons.com/item/show/2189649068_the_pickup#sthash.AXoXRcp6.dpuf

Not up to her best work, but still a powerful story told in an array of voices, each of which sounds authentic.

This book is set in 1680s New England at the beginnings of the slave trade and race hatred. It tells the stories of five diverse women. Excellent.
