Footprints of Previous Owners by Rebecca Entel explores the violent past of a slave plantation on a fictional island in the Caribbean.
I read this one while in Mexico, so while the tropical descriptions were easy to visualize, Entel’s descriptive writing helped me paint those images in my head with ease.
Myrna, the book’s main character, is a maid at the tourist resort by day, but at night she explores the resort’s grounds to uncover a past that locals chose to ignore.
When a rich African American arrives on the island, she brings new information that also increases tensions between the resort and the locals.
