About the Author:

Jessica Bentley was born in Australia in 1979 and moved with her mother and sisters to the UK in 1986. She currently resides in London with her husband and enjoys writing historical fiction. From the age of sixteen Jessica fell in love with Margaret Mitchell's 'Gone with the wind' and since then reads it every year at Christmas. In her debut novel 'The Cane Whisperers' Jessica wanted to create a narrative that was atmospheric of the Antebellum era but one that questioned the very nature of how anyone can be free in a society where slavery exists. The novel deals with how slaves and slave owners justified the institution and found ways to rebel against it and also plays with gender roles so that we see male characters who are as helpless as the typical Southern Belles we are used to. Jessica is currently working on the sequel to 'The Cane Whisperers' which will focus on the next generation of characters and take up where Jem, Coralie and Sarah left off in their quest for freedom.
