Cohn Ed with impressive authority throughout Leigh Feldman Darhansoff Verrill Feldman Literary AgencyAbout the authorPaul Cohn became intrigued with the story of São Tomé Island after viewing Luc Cuyveres' PBS series Into the Rising Sun which chronicled the 15th and 16th Century Portuguese voyages of exploration His research revealed the compelling history of this euatorial West African island colony The beginnings and then the centerpiece for wholesale African slave trafficking the kidnapping of Jewish children from the Portuguese mainland to work the Tomé sugar plantations and the corrosive influence of sugar commerce on both Europe and the Americas This was a tale to be shared with the reading public. This book is well researched original and compelling historical fiction at its best I picked up this book to check off Sao Tome on my around the world reading adventure and a world I never new about opened before my eyes and isn t that what a reader wants from historical fiction Interestingly I recently read People of the Book a novel that goes back to the Spanish Inuisition and the expulsion of Jews Sao Tome is also set in this time starting in Portugal Jewish children in Portugal were kidnapped from there families and sent to Sao Tome to work the sugar cane fields I never knew Set in the late 1400 s just after Christopher Columbus journey to the Americas and at the beginning of Europe s presence in West Africa the book covers in accurate and disturbing detail the origins of the slave trade The detail in the book is not for the faint of heart disease torture war intrigue duplicity and are covered This lends the book a disturbingly realistic view into the period So much historical fiction covers the same old territory0 WWII and the US Civil War must make up 75% of historical fiction I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate authors that dive into periods little is written about I have read fiction and nonfiction on the slave trade but little about the very early years Understanding that Europe s desire for sugar the growth of that market in parallel with the expansion of cane growth in the New World and the eventual realization that slaves earned 101 money by weight compared to sugar is laid out by this book in a compelling story format There is so much in this richly detailed novel If you enjoy historical fiction and can take a realistic depiction of the brutal reality of the times then you will likely enjoy this book and learn from it Interstingly I read this book in parallel with The Lost Girls of Paris and found that book insipid compared to Sao Tome

Cohn In 1485 the Portuguese Crown and Catholic Church began to kidnap Jewish children forcibly convert the young conscripts and ship them to São Tomé Island off the African euator to work the government sugar plantations The collision of slavery sugar agriculture and discovery of The Americas transformed this island colony into the nidus of the wholesale black slave trade that infected Africa and Western commerce for the next 350 years This is a uniue and little known chapter of the Diaspora which also reveals the Medieval Church s complicity in the business of slavery São Tomé tells the story of young Marcel Saulo and his sister Leah who were abducted with other children from their synagogue in Lisbon.
