Set in 1934 Georgetown Guyana, The Girl from the Sugar Plantation is about Mary Grace who is the mix-raced daughter of the only female sugar cane planter.

This is a beautifully written story of a young girl learning her way. Being mix-raced, Mary Grace must learn her way through a world she knows is prejudice against her. 

Mary Grace learns that navigating the British upper class can benefit her in the best and worst of ways. The Best of Ways:  Being strong and thorough with her music and also holding her own again her mother (who was a bit of a bully). The Worst of Ways: Getting involved in a scandalous romance. 

This story is long and detailed, but my issue stemmed from not really connecting with Mary Grace. I suppose it has a lot to do with her way of handling things. Still, I enjoyed this one just for the historical content. Adding the romance and drama, it’s a great read for historical readers.

Grown ass woman, Mother, reader, drinker of the red wines, not so serious makeup enthusiast and finally...a habitual procrastinator. I read just about everything but I really do love my romances. HEA’s are optional because hell sometimes, Prince Charming really is just a frog. Don’t asked if I finished *that book* yet...because I didn’t.

  1. Bummer you couldn't connect with Mary Grace, but the historical setting and social situation sounds really neat.

    1. ikr, but I seriously think its me. Most times I think the women written in historicals are ridiculously dramatic and I keep telling myself in my head, like there is no way women were like this...couldn't be, lols. But still its a good read.
