Publisher's 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.


What the Critics Say

"It is rare to read a literary novel where the storytelling is as skilful as the writing is fine...Harris has pulled off the only too rare double whammy." (The Sunday Times)
"Jane Harris is rather special." (The Observer)

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.
