Narrator Noel Davies gives authentic pronunciation and cadence to the Jamaican patois in which the author writes this historically accurate novel. Told from the perspective of 14-year-old Moa, a cane cutter of Akan origin, the story follows Tacky's Revolt of 1760 as carried out on a sugar plantation. Every character of African lineage--from Moa and his siblings through those in his parents' generation--is fully realized by both author and performer. Their distinct personalities are as genuine as the daily tasks and hardships recounted and the even more traumatic events of rebellion they encounter. The perfect pairing of author and narrator makes listening to this title more accessible than the print version for many. F.M.R.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
