Liverpool Bay, 1804, is the hub of slave traders bringing their cargo into port in England, the Triangle Trade. Woodland's novel follows the life of William King as he disembarks from the vessel, Margaret Rose, with a distaste for slave trade businesses, including that of his father. This is a thrilling exploration of a crucial turning point in British history as man struggles next to man in the anti-slavery movement and as Parliament threatens the awful slave trade and one of the city's greatest financial avenues. The vivid descriptions, such as gloomy, bustling Liverpool Bay, and life at sea, are part of the joy of this book as you can immerse yourself in the world of the characters, whether shielding yourself from the rain on a stormy ship, or nestled in a family home. Generational change, moral wickedness, greed, romance and the fortunes of war mix. Woodland's dialogue is gripping with riveting characterisation - particularly William King as he struggles to find his place in the world and his relationship with his father. This is an intense look into a pocket of time that would have economic, political and social repercussions for centuries to come, written with great style and emotion. 265pp.
