Our Reviewer's humble opinion
0/10 Sorry, I haven't had time to read this yet.
The publisher reckons...
The sequel to "Nightjohn". Sarny has grown since the days of her lessons with Nightjohn, and she knows more than her "master", Old Weller, wants her to know - and knowledge can be a dangerous thing. But, as slavery crumbles, Sarny embarks upon a search for her family, and the walk towards freedom.
And what do you think?
Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian
Based on real evidence, Sarny is a first-person retrospective account by an old slave whose life spans the ending of slavery in the US. One slave's fight for human rights gives a moving picture of the legacy of slavery.
