From the Publisher
In 1798, a young Quaker father and widower leaves his
home in Pennsylvania with his 15-year-old orphan wife and his five
children to a establish a new life. When he soon finds himself the
owner of a young slave boy, a chain of events is set in motion that
will lead to two murders and the family''s strange relationship
with a runaway slave named Bett.
Lyrical and as hard-edged as the realities
of pioneer life, Spalding''s writing is nothing short of stunning.
Her characters and their stories are unforgettable. Atmospheric and
gripping, powerful and morally complex, the novel is timeless.
