The war of 1812 is over, but for the inmates at Dartmoor
Prison, peace―like home―is still a long way away.
On New Year’s Eve 1814, the American sailors of the Eagle
finally arrive at Dartmoor prison, bedraggled, exhausted,
but burning with hope. They’ve only had one thing to sustain
them during the harrowing voyage―a snatched whisper
overheard along the way. The war is finally over.
Joe Hill thought he’d left the war outside these walls but
it’s quickly clear that there’s a different type of fight to
be had within. The seven prison blocks surrounding him have
been segregated; six white and one black.
Inspired by true events, this novel recounts the remarkable
story of the first ever all-black Shakespeare production,
staged by segregated American prisoners of war. It is a
story of hope and freedom, of loss and suffering. It is a
story about how sometimes, in our darkest hour, it can be
the most unlikely of things that see us through.
