Rate this:
Told in the irresistibly willful and intimate voice of Miss July, with some editorial assistance from her son, Thomas, The Long Song is at once defiant, funny and shocking. The child of a slave on a sugar plantation, July lives with her mother until Caroline Mortimer, a recently transplanted English widow, decides to move her into the great house. Resourceful and mischievous, July soon becomes indispensable to her mistress. Together they live through the bloody Baptist war, followed by the violent and chaotic end of slavery.
