9780099445173: Not With Silver

Abiola is raised as an aristocratic African warrior in a highly developed civilisation, but when he is betrayed and sold into slavery in America he is forcibly transformed into the property of a French immigrant. Renamed Cornelius, he and fellow slave Delilah begin a relationship which culminates in the birth of their daughter, Epiphany, and the new family plan to escape their servitude and find a better life for themselves...

But can they return to Africa and find true freedom?

Review:

"A brave, morally sophisticated epic" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Satisfying and traditional family saga...a total-immersion novel that sweeps the reader across centuries and continents... Powerful and gripping" ( The Times)

"Relentlessly honest... A brave and uncomfortable labour of love" ( Spectator)

"Meticulously researched...her novel captures the sound of Agogo bells and talking drums, the golden colours of the court, the ceremonial scents of indigo and camwood" ( Independent)

"Bedford admirably details African complicity in human trafficking...powerfully driven" ( Big Issue)

Book Description:

A vividly realised historical novel about three generations of an African family, and their experiences of slavery, which draws on the author's wider ancestral history.
