The Call of Zulina by Kay Marshall

I signed up to be on this blog tour for The Call of Zulina but I also changed my mailing address and unfortunately there was some kind of mix-up. It happened for several books this month, but I want to honor my commitment so I'm afraid there will be a lot of review-less posts this month.

I do think this book looks interesting. Duh, that's why I signed up to begin with! :)

The Call of ZulinaAbout the Book: Grace Winslow, the daughter of a mixed marriage between an English sea captain and an African princess, is swept up in a slave revolt after she escapes the family compound to avoid an odious betrothal.

As the truth about the fortress of Zulina unfolds, Grace begins to grasp the brutality and ferocity of the family─the capture and trade of slaves.

Despite being held for ransom, viciously maimed by a runaway slave, and threatened with death, Grace sympathizes with the plight of the captives. She is especially moved by the African Cabeto’s passion, determination, and willingness to sacrifice anything, including his own life, for his people’s freedom. Leaning on the faith of her nanny Mama Muco, Grace risks everything to follow her heart.

How horrible to miss out on the books! I have had some books not arrive even without change of address and publishers are always very nice to send another, even if they might suspect me of peddling them along with drugs on the corner. I hope your mail gets back to normal soon!
