    The story of Lilith, born into slavery on a Jamaican sugar plantation at the end of the 18th century. Even at her birth, the slave women around her recognize a dark power that they - and she - will come to both revere and fear. The Night Women, as they call themselves, have long been plotting a slave revolt, and as Lilith comes of age and reveals the extent of her power, they see her as the key to their plans.

    "twenty stars"
    Overall

    Ten stars for the author and ten for the reader. Robin Miles is wonderful. Male voices, female voices, accents, flavors, tones. When there are six people in the room I hear six different people, and remind myself with amazement that it's all Ms. Miles. Wonderful book!

    Sam, Bonzi, Lola, Mbongo, Jelani, and Makena are no ordinary apes. These bonobos know American Sign Language. Isabel Duncan, a scientist at the Great Ape Language Lab, doesn’t understand people, but animals she gets—especially the bonobos. Isabel feels more comfortable in their world than she’s ever felt among humans...until she meets John Thigpen, a very married reporter who braves the ever-present animal rights protesters outside the lab to see what’s really going on inside.

    "I wish I had read these reviews"
    Overall

    I will as kindly as possible suggest to Mr. Boehmer that in the future he only read books with male characters, and that insipid and whiny does not equal female. The women's voices are horrible and very distracting - so distracting that I'm not even sure whether my disappointment in the story is because of the story or the reading..
