    This is a disappointing book. It was written in the 1950's and not published formally until quite recently. The published book is still very much a draft with many spelling and grammatical mistakes in the text and numerous typo's. This makes the book uncomfortsble to read. I travel regularly to St Eustatius and love the island, it;s people and history. This interest makes the book worth reading for me personally. I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the daily life of the traders, seamen an This is a disappointing book. It was written in the 1950's and not published formally until quite recently. The published book is still very much a draft with many spelling and grammatical mistakes in the text and numerous typo's. This makes the book uncomfortsble to read. I travel regularly to St Eustatius and love the island, it;s people and history. This interest makes the book worth reading for me personally. I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of the daily life of the traders, seamen and plantation holders and their families. The role St Eustatius played in the Ameriacan war of independence is fascinating and deserves more recognition. However, the plot and the storylines are not fully developed in the book. Towards the end of the book little more remains than a hurried sketchy description of historical events, interesting in themselves, but not developed and integrated into the novel.A pity. I was glad wgen I had finished the book and could start reading something else. Sorry... Still I'm keen to read more Caribbean literature and am open to recommendations.
