When 19-year-old Abeona Browne’s renowned abolitionist father dies in summer of 1860, devastating family secrets are revealed, and her life of privilege and naiveté in Southern Michigan becomes a frantic transatlantic search for someone she didn’t even know existed.
The journey to Western Africa and across the Dark Continent is fraught with wild beasts, raging storm, illness, and bounty hunters who know her father’s diaries are filled with damning secrets which could threaten the very anti-slavery movement he helped to build.
A Thin Porridge is a Homeric tale of second chances, forgiveness, and adventure which whisks readers from the filth of tweendecks, into the treachery of Cameroons Town, across the beauty of Table Bay, and deep into the heart of the fynbos—where Boer miners continue the outlawed scourge of slavery.
