    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

    I loved this book. I especially loved the Narration.I loved the rawness that the writer brought to life. He used great language that was so real, I felt as though I was sitting watching this world unfold. Marlon Davis, dipiction of The Book of Night Women (Unabridged) made me thank God I was born in this time. I was capitivated by his use of dialect. I felt as though I was there with the women in all of their suffering. I thought and think that this book is excellent and that the writer is amazing. Certainly not a watered down version of how slavery was.
