Opinion

From Library Staff

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

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.
