Not With Silver

by Simi Bedford
£7.99   paperback  Vintage (2008)

Not With Silver by Simi Bedford Abiola is raised as an aristocratic African warrior in a highly developed civilisation, but when he is betrayed and sold into slavery in America he is forcibly transformed into the property of a French immigrant.
 
Renamed Cornelius, he and fellow slave Delilah begin a relationship with culminates in the birth of their daughter, Epiphany, and the new family plan to escape their servitude and find a better life for themselves...
 
But can they return to Africa and find true freedom?

"Meticulously researched...her novel captures the sounds of Agogo bells and talking drums, the golden colours of the court, the ceremonial scents of indigo and camwood."
(Independent)
