Island Beneath the Sea by Isabel Allende
Island Beneath the Sea

nbeckpdx, January 19, 2012

Isabel Allende's latest epic historical novel does not disappoint. Set in the late 18th and early 19th Century in Haiti,Cuba,and New Orleans,LA,we learn from the perspective of a brilliant African slave woman about the horrific treatment of slaves on Haiti's sugar plantations,the rebellions against the planters and the French colonial government,and the complexities of race,gender and class among blacks,whites,and mixed race people in New Orleans. Well-researched and compelling work from this brilliant storyteller.
