Arriving in Guiana nine year old Song finds little evidence of the easy fortunes to be made that enticed him to risk his life to travel there Instead he finds only punishing labour harsh cruelty and an existence akin to slavery on a sugarcane plantation By a stroke of good fortune Song is taken under the wing of Father Holmes who teaches him to read and write and introduces Song to the love of books and reading Not everyone agrees with Father Holmes decision to educate a houseboy but Father Holmes robustly defends his actions Reading changes everything Writing will give him a step up Whatever Song chooses to do in life he ll do it better with a pen or book in his hand Who could disagree with that Together Song and Father Holmes form a close bond sharing a mutual interest in documenting the native birds of GuianaA trip upriver with Father Holmes gives Song a possible new direction in life However it s one that is not without danger When a shocking act of betrayal and violence occurs it results in a desperate act that will haunt Song for years afterwards It also illustrates the lure of gold which like a fever infects the so called pork knockers who set out to make their fortunesAs Song sets out to achieve the life objectives he has set himself he faces discrimination and injustice This reader certainly gave a little cheer as Song begins to fight back against the forces of the old boys network he finds ranged against him However along the way he is forced to make difficult and at times uestionable moral choicesSong is clever resourceful and mindful of the advice he receives from the influential figures in his life Father Holmes a wonderful warm and humane character his shipmate on the terrible voyage to Guiana Li Bai and mining engineer Mr Leigh He also benefits from the wisdom of several women Jingy Josie Amalia with their ability to read a situationI m always drawn to descriptions of food in books and there are some great ones in Song that really bring to life the atmosphere of Georgetown There were baked chicken legs in molasses chicken wings in forest honey bass with onion and ginger cauldrons of pepper pot rice coloured with strands of saffron blackened barbecue pork potato and pea curry with turmeric and dozen dishes of stewed okra and fried tomatoes A repeated theme of the book is the importance of living a life that is a story worth telling Song s life is definitely a story worth telling Song is a wonderful tale of survival friendship courage and triumph over adversity It also has at its heart a tender and heart warming love story Michelle you had me in tears at the endI received a review copy courtesy of publishers Unbound and Random Things Tours in return for an honest and unbiased review

Set in the late 1800s this is the story of Song a young Chinese boy who leaves behind his family and home after the death of his father to seek his fortune in the colonies of the British Empire namely in Guiana What follows is a harrowing boat trip which is so well written you can almost feel the claustrophobia and smell the death and faeces his work on a sugar plantation on arrival in Guiana and his journey through decades as he seeks to overcome his past and improve his life and those of his friends and new familyThis book deals with slavery colonialism at its worst racism and religious prejudice and despite being set in the 19th Century has some telling similarities to modern day people trafficking and forced labour But this is not heavy handed Jana Chan has a beautiful way with her prose she can be poetic and lyrical yet brutal and heartbreaking There were occasions where I felt the descriptions were a little lacking I wanted to be able to smell the moist dampness of the rainforest upriver and there were a couple of instances of repetitiveness but overall this was a very worthy read and I wouldn t hesitate to recommend itThank you to NetGalley Unbound and Michelle Jana Chan for the opportunity to read and review
