characters São Tome Journey to the Abyss Portugal's Stolen Children 100 In 1485 the Portuguese Crown and Catholic Church began to kidnap Jewish children forcibly convert the young conscripts and ship them to São Tomé Island off the African euator to work the government sugar plantations The collision of slavery sugar agriculture and discovery of The Americas transformed this island colony into the nidus of the wholesale black slave trade that infected Africa and Western commerce for the next 350 years This is a uniue and little known chapter of the Diaspora which also reveals the Medieval Church s complicity in the business of slavery São Tomé tells the story of young Marcel Saulo and his sister Leah who were abducted with other children from their synagogue in Lisbon. Sao Tome gives the reader a front row seat as it reveals the personalities politics and intrigues of late 15th Century Portugal Spain and Africa as Church and Crown connive to dominate the commerce of sugar and slavery The novel is the story seen through the eyes of its young protagonist Marcel Saulo It is exceptional from the very first page Based on historical records of the kidnappings of Jewish children and their shipment to the Crown sugar plantations on Sao Tome Island the story unwinds in tantalizing complexity always surprising the reader with its deep felt personal account Marcel Saulo is indeed a maverick and runs afoul of both State and Church from the beginning Despite many trials a couple of which are nearly fatal he eventually succeeds as a sugar planter secret Jew and advocate against the growing African Slave trade He raises a family recovers from personal tragedy and continues his struggle against injustice The novel ends with the most unexpected event of all yet one the reader has secretly hoped for throughout the narrative One reviewer called this novel an extraordinary accomplishment I agree Sao Tome is a must read for anyone who appreciates a great story with well developed characters and a fine historical perspective about the origins of slavery
