Cambridge is a powerful and haunting novel set in that uneasy time between the abolition of the slave trade and the emancipation of the slaves. It is the story of Emily Cartwright, a young woman sent from England to visit her father's West Indian plantation, and Cambridge, a plantation slave, educated and Christianised by his first master in England and now struggling to maintain his dignity.
Phillips welds an Englishwoman's journal to testimonials from a slave to form this superbly achieved novel about a 19th-century sugar plantation in the West Indies. Author tour.
