The Cost of Sugar is the successful debut of Suriname’s most celebrated historical novelist, Cynthia Mc Leod. Published 28 years ago in 1987, the novel was an instant bestseller in Surinam for Vaco Press, and also in the Netherlands for uitgeverij Conserve. 150.000 copies werd sold totally after the movie (2013) and television-series (2014) by Jean van de Velde. The book was also published in Germany, in hard cover by Langen-Müller and in pocket by Fischer and in Italy by Leone Editore.

In an engrossing historical account, Cynthia Mc Leod takes her readers back to the 18th century (between 1765-1779 to be precise), recapping the intriguing history of those rabid times through the eyes of two Jewis step sisters, Elza and Sarith, descendants of of the settlers of ‘new Jerusalem of the River’, known today as Joden Savanna, the oldest Jewish settlement in Surinam which boasts the first synagogue in the Western Hemisphere.

The Cost of Sugar is a frank exposé of life in the Dutch slave colony when sugar ruled as kind – and the tragic toll it took on the lives of colonists and slaves alike.
