In early 1800s Jamaica, Caroline steals the child slave July as her maid. July grows up to witness the Christmas Rebellion and the radical transformation of her world.

The Long Song follows July and Caroline’s story, and the way their lives change with the arrival of a charming new overseer, who has big plans to change the plantation — and the lives of those working there.
