Summary

Pharcel, a runaway slave, is heavily sought by all the political forces on the small island of Dominica - the white English colonists, the revolutionary French, and the rebellious mulattos - for his role in the slave uprisings. Torn between loyalty to his race and a strong personal desire for freedom and acceptance by the colonial powers and the rising mulatto influence, he walks a razor’s edge of duplicity and ambivalence until his natural rebelliousness is pitted against the full force of colonial power. In the end, he succumbs to an irresistible and nearly fatal attraction for the wife of a French planter. But in a fit of ruthless rage, Pharcel sets the colony ablaze.
