This historical fiction book is excellent. read to me brilliantly and the end section by Sarah to explain how she created the book very useful.
I believe everyone should read this book, it provides an insight into life on the plantations and how very cruel white people where to black people all down to the colour of ones skin. A truly good read.
Where does Island of a Thousand Springs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
My absolute favorite.

Any of Sarah Lark's books. All available audio versions are done by the same narrator and she's perfect.
Which scene was your favorite?
I could never name just one.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
This book is written in 3rd person. I don't care for 1st person novels, so in case you are like me, I wanted to mention this. I absolutely can't wait for more of Sarah Lark's books to be translated into English, and for more audio versions. I could read and listen to her books over and over and over, and I'm a very picky reader. Her books are very well researched, and although she takes some liberties with history, I like that the basic history is authentic. Be sure and listen to the afterword, for the author's detailed explanations of her research and the actual history of the time and characters.
Her characters are all so well developed that you feel like you know them all. I miss them!
You should know that the main subject of this book is slavery in Jamaica, in case you find the subject upsetting. Without spoiling the story, though, all of the slaves are not victims.
