The Quality Of Mercy by Barry Unsworth

The Quality Of Mercy

The Quality of Mercy is the sequel to Barry Unsworth’s Booker Prize winner The Sacred Hunger, a novel about a slave ship revolt where the survivors ended up living peacefully in an interracial community in Florida, before they were found and captured by British soldiers acting in business interests.  In this follow-up book, the characters are various people involved, in some way,  with the ensuing trial.

I have to admit, I enjoyed this novel even more than it’s predecessor.  It’s thought-provoking and entirely human.  I loved it!
