Property by Valerie Martin


Valerie Martin

A beautifully written story that transports you into the horrors of the Deep South in the 1820s.

'In the morning he was in fury because Mr Sutter has gotten into such a standoff with one of the negroes that he has had him whipped and it will be a week before he work again. Sutter's real grievance, he says is that Leo has befriended a woman Sutter wants for himself. I had to listen to all this at breakfast.'
