Title: Testimony of an Irish Slave Girl

By: Kate McCafferty

Rating >3

Summary: Kidnapped from Galway, Ireland, as a young girl, shipped to Barbados, and forced to work the land alongside African slaves, Cot Daley's life has been shaped by injustice.

Review: I was looking forward to this novel because I haven't read a lot about this time period and I thought it would be interesting to learn more about it. However after reading about fifteen pages into it I had to stop. The writing style did not appeal to me, and the characters just seemed flat and one dimensional. Very rarely will I not finish a book, but this is one of the few that I put back on the bookshelf without finishing it.
