The Call of Zulina by Kay Marshall Strom
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved everything about this book! The cover is absolutely stunning, the story captivating(howbeit emotional), and the writing is flawless!
Grace Winslow is the daughter of a English slave trader and an African Princess. Raised as a "proper English lass" Grace has always been protected from the horror that her family has imposed on the lives of so many African families. Until a "slave" insist that he is not the true slave but she is. A slave to her fancy privileged lifestyle, her powerful mother and her greedy father.
Determined to prove him wrong she sets out to prove her independence and discovers a tragedy that cannot be ignored. Can she turn back to the life she "can't live without" or take a stand against evil? The choice is not easy and it is not one that can be made without sacrifices either way.
If you are looking for a book that will keep you in an emotional grip from the first page to the last this book should definitely be considered!
I would recommend this book for ages 13 and up.
