Does slavery exist in England? Could it be that Nathaniel is in luck when charged with caring for pineapples en route to that country? Yet aboard ship, Nathaniel learns about the slave ship ‘Zong’. Thereafter, he is inflamed by his drive for ‘Freedom‘.
Catherine Johnson has created a moving, strong story around Nathaniel, through which readers encounter real incidents and people from a shameful age.
