    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.

    Overall

    Please do not sleep on this audio book. The narrator sings her way through the chapters in true Jamaican dialect while ensuring that each and every character has their own voice. I literally could not stop listening until the entire read was complete. After it was finished, I found myself researching carribean slavery, and found the content to be mostly true. I could see the characters in my mind and smell them, and hear their songs. I cannot express how touching this book was to me and dare I say, I dont know if I would have felt the same if I would have simply read the book. The narrator gave the stories life and I was wanting more and more even after the final word was read. This is my first written review of a book ever which should tell you how deeply I feel that this is one that should not be ignored.
