Sacred Hunger by Barry Unsworth

Donated by Petrina Barson, who says...

In this wonderful story of a slave rebellion is the whole human condition: our inner demons, the difficulty of keeping them at bay, the struggle to do so, the consequences when we don’t, the strength of compassion even in the face of overwhelming evil. It takes you into a world where it was socially acceptable to abduct other human beings for forced labour and treat them as tools. It explores so intelligently that historical moment when empathy begins to unsettle an established social order.
