Don't get your hopes up!,

This review is from: Belle: The Slave Daughter and the Lord Chief Justice (Paperback)
I was really hoping for a detailed history of this fascinating young woman and her great uncle, but was left wanting. What you do get is an often repetitive history of the slave trade, the sugar trade, the abolishionists and a tiny weeny bit of supposition about Dido Belle's life. There clearly wasn't enough surviving evidence on which to base a well-rounded story of her life. Nice idea though.
