Description:

Boston. 1966. Houghton Mifflin. Later Printing. Very Good.No Dustjacket. 497 pages. hardcover. ISBN: inventory # 27886. FROM THE PUBLISHER - This long, absorbing book is many things at once. It is a great Civii War novel, based on the true life story of the author’s great-grandmother. It is an intimate picture of life on a Georgia plantation in all its pre-Civil War glamour and its eventual collapse. But the most striking thing about it is this: for the first time the whole antebellum Civil War, and Reconstruction story is told from the Negro point of view by a Negro. Vyry, the heroine, was born and grew up, married and bore her first two children, as a slave on the splendid plantation of John Dutton. That she was John Dutton’s child, resembling with her pale face and hair his treasured daughter Lillian, made no difference. John Dutton kept an eye on Vyry but spared her nothing, not the cruel treatment of his resentful wife, not the lash of the overseer, not the nakedness of the auction block — though she was never sold. She was his daughter but she was his chattel. These events, so startling in themselves, are as nothing in the great narrative sweep of the novel. History comes alive as we follow Vyry from her years of service in the grandeur of the plantation house through the slow starvation of the war to the bitter fruits of Reconstruction. There is her early love affair and marriage with Randall Ware, the free Negro, who owned his own smithy, fathered her first two children, tried to buy her freedom, was refused, disappeared into the Union Army for the duration only to find Vyry gone on his belated return. There is her second marriage to Innis, for whom and with whom she struggled to find and fulfill the promise of Lincoln’s gift of freedom. JUBILEE is the authentic story of a woman with a dream she couldn’t give up, a dream for which she bled and triumphed, the dream of literacy for her children and a home of her own. It is a long, rich novel full of human interest and emotion, and will inevitably be called the Negro GONE WITH THE WIND. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: A bold new novel from the author of Restoration and The Way I Found Her

In the year 1629, a young English lutenist named Peter Claire arrives at the Danish court to join King Christian IV's royal orchestra. From the moment when he realizes that the musicians have to perform in a freezing cellar underneath the royal apartments, he understands that he's come to a place where the opposing states of light and dark, good and evil, are waging war to the death. Designated the king's "Angel" because of his good looks, he finds himself falling in love with the young woman who is the companion of the king's adulterous and estranged wife, Kirsten. With his loyalties fatally divided, how will Peter Claire find the path that will realize his hopes and save his soul?

With a sure, alchemical touch and the narrative finesse that always turns her histories into a kind of magic, Rose Tremain has fashioned a rich, provocative historical romance as pungent as Denmark's salty air. This is a tale of opposites: light and darkness, tenderness and violence, music and silence.
