Summary

Martinique, 1765. Brothers Emile and Lucien are charged by their French master, Father Cleophas, with a mission. They must return to Grenada, the island they once called home, and smuggle back 42 slaves claimed by English invaders. While Lucien, barely in his teens, sees the trip as a great adventure, Emile has no illusions about the dangers they will face. But with no choice other than to obey, he sets out with his brother on a reckless venture.

Amazing Naration

As a huge fan of Jane Harris I was a tad disappointed with the end bit. I think maybe I shall read the book to see if I can get a different perspective. The Narration was just superb I think I was mesmerized by listening to the story rather than fully understanding the plot.

A slow start, but quickly becomes un-put-downable

I had a little trouble getting into Sugar Money for the first few chapters, but couldn’t stop listening once the story gets going. It’s definitely worth a listen for anyone with an interest in colonial or post-colonial literature or the slave trade.
