Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

The descendant of both European planters and African slaves, Andrea Stuart brings to life the contrasting experiences of both sides of her family as she traces its history since George Ashby's journey to Barbados in the late 1630s. Her story reflects the region's social history – families which mostly started out as ethnically white and became, over time, predominantly black – but also demonstrates the inequality in a society where white families' histories are recorded, and slaves 'leave only very faint footsteps'.
