Summary
A startling, hard-edged dissection of slavery and at the heart of the novel is the extraordinary character Lilith, a spirited slave girl struggling to transcend the violence into which she is born. Over-flowing with high drama and heartbreak, at its centre is the conspiracy of the Night Women, a clandestine council of fierce slaves
Summary
Feared from birth for her vivid green eyes, which her fellow slaves believe to be evidence of her dark powers, young slave Lilith is both revered and avoided throughout her childhood and becomes a key in the success of a long-planned slave revolt
