    Joshua Hempstead was a well-respected farmer and tradesman in New London, Connecticut. As his remarkable diary - kept from 1711 until 1758 - reveals, he was also a slave owner who owned Adam Jackson for over thirty years. In this engrossing narrative of family life and the slave experience in the colonial North, Allegra di Bonaventura describes the complexity of this master/slave relationship and traces the intertwining stories of two families until the eve of the Revolution.
