Saturday and the Witch Woman
Last Friday, I received a surprise in the mail, a hardcover book called Saturday and the Witch Woman written by Tom Ott, my client and friend. Tom is a professor of Caribbean history who has wanted to write about Saturday for many years.
Several years ago Tom sent a draft of the book for me to read and give him my opinion. He has now come full circle and actually published the book in hardcover and electronically on Amazon.
If you enjoy historical novels, take the time to read this book about Saturday, a slave who saved the lives of his masters, two white children, during the Haitian war of independence in August of 1791. He smuggled them to freedom and cared for them over a period of 40 years.
Saturday was an incredible human being. He was literate, spoke seven languages, and was extremely brave.
The story is told through a series of letters which Saturday wrote to the two children he saved. The book spans more than 50 years of history in the Caribbean and the southern United States.
I usually don’t promote clients in my blog, but I am so proud to have a small role in the history of this book that I just had to share it with everyone. So if you have a chance, order the book on Amazon and enjoy a wonderful story!Share
