On the day that Jacob agrees to accept a slave as payment for a debt, little Florens's life changes. With her intelligence and passion for wearing the cast-off shoes of her mistress. Florens has never blended into the background and now, aged eight, she has taken from her family to begin a new life. She ends up part of Jacob's household, along with his wife Rebecca, their Native American servant Lina and the enigmatic Sorrow, who was rescued from shipwreck. Together these women face trials of their harsh enivronment as Jacob attempts to carve out a place for himself in the brutal landscape of the north of America in the seventeenth century.

Found this on one of the tables at the Amsterdam BC Convention. I will read it, but it will take some time.

It took me quite some time to finish this book. The start was not easy, the English being used not the regular language I am used to.
We visited the area that is described in the book a few years ago. It is hard to imagine that it was a harsh and barren land, where people had to work hard to accomplish things. For slaves it was even harder!
