My rating needs some explaining... Dec 29 2010
By William E. Adams - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just got back from a cruise to Jamaica, and my wife and I toured the Rose Hall Plantation, a restored "great house" that was the centerpiece of a sugar cane empire near Montego Bay, from about 1750 to 1870. The selling point for this tourist attraction is the legend of Annie Palmer, mistress of the home and boss of the business in the first three decades of the 19th century. The legend claims the white woman was a witch, skilled in voodoo, sexually voracious, and possibly killed her first three husbands and got away with it. She was also reputed to be extra cruel to slaves with attitude, yet not adverse to taking some of the male slaves to her bedroom. Annie was killed in 1831 in a slave rebellion, and is buried on the grounds. "They" say she haunts the place. It's a good yarn, can't be disproven, and while probably little of it is true except the cruelty to human property, this book presents a fictional version of the last several months of Annie's life. Frankly, the quality of the writing is pretty low: grammatical errors abound, and sentence structure is awkward at best. However, having seen the home, heard the guide's narrative, and fallen under the spell a bit of its beautiful setting on a hillside, I am glad to have read the book. It would make a fascinating film in the right hands. The author seems to be pretty credible in his descriptions of plantation life, slavery's evils, the sugar and rum businesses of the era, and the hardships even for the powerful white landowners. His explanations of voodoo also appear believable. Whether the widow Palmer was really a quick seducer of her male employees, and those employees quickly provided with the the fringe benefits of slave girls to do their laundry and cooking and bed-sharing, is debatable. I give the book only one star for presentation, since the manuscript seems never to have encountered even a minimally skilled copy editor, but as a potential movie outline, it's got all the action, melodrama and suspense one would desire. If you ever get to Montego Bay, don't miss the Rose Hall tour. It will give you a couple of hours of harmless fun, and a peek at a bygone world and its luxuries. One of the more interesting aspects to me was that the late Johnny and June Cash, whose winter home was only five minutes away, donated a couple of pieces of fine old furniture to the restoration, and performed a concert out front to raise funds for it. The curent owners of Rose Hall also bought the Cash home after Johnny's death.

I could NOT put this book down. I normally read about 2 books per month, however I read this book in about 3 days!! It was sooo GOOD.....every character, every scene, every event "took me there". The thing that made this book SOOO real for me was because my wife and I visited the mansion and took the tour while vacationing in Jamaica. I saw the rooms, the fields, the gardens, the nearby roads, etc. etc. After talking to the tour guide and then reading the book, I appreciated the realism captured in the author's story telling. Trust me, this is book will keep your interest and entice imagination.

Mike Hall does a great job of bringing the characters to life and telling this true store. However, as someone who has a dozen Jamaican stamps on my passport, I was looking forward to reading about the land, customs, smells and other items which help raise a good story to a memorable book! Unfortunately, my impression is Mike Henry has not spent a lot of time on the ground around Rose Hall (maybe he has... just dosn't feel like it). It is still a good story and interesting read.
A bit of a disappintment if you really want to know the story about the White Witch Dec 2 2013

Was a little disappointed, I thought there would be more about Annie Palmer. I keep reading,waiting for the story to tell me something about her and it never really did say to much about her at all, which is why I bought the book in the first place. We recently went to Jamacia and heard talk of the White Witch, so I looked up the book to find out more about her story and actually got more from the Jamacians.

I was told about this book from a cab driver in Jamaica. I bought it thinking it was nonfiction. It is based on fact but it is not nonfiction. It does give an incite on what really went on in Jamaica. That was a real eye opener. I wouldn't recommend friends to buy it but would offer to let them read it.
