|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. |
|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.
