From the sugar plantations of Saint-Domingue to the lavish parlors of New Orleans at the turn of the 19th century, the latest novel from New York Times bestselling author Isabel Allende (Inés of My Soul, The House of the Spirits, Portrait in Sepia) tells the story of a mulatta woman, a slave and concubine, determined to take control of her own destiny.

Not an Easy Read

The book is fairly complex, but the author seems to make it easy to keep track of the characters. It did not capture my interest as strongly as her earlier books. Still, I needed to finish it even though I found myself skimming some parts.

A good quick read, enjoy reading about the struggles of African slaves brought to America, a sad part of our history.
