The Richness by Steve Driscoll
The Richness is a fictional story taking place in an alternative historical timeline, chronicling events from the early 1600s to the present day. Although the text is primarily devoted to envisioning an ancestral link between himself and the Nevis-born woman he loves, Driscoll's extensive narrative explores the varying ways in which the atrocities of the slave trade displaces so many lives, and how the repercussions are still being felt in the 21st century.
