Turnbull's Slaves: A Minorcan Story...is a historical adventure/romance of white slavery, based on the ill-fated British colony at New Smyrna Florida, taking place in the 18th century. The colony was made up of 1200 Minorcan slaves to a wealthy British landowner.
Over half the Minorcans died from horrible conditions during the ten year existence of the colony.
The British landowner kept the Minorcans in bondage, and living under horrific conditions, even worse than many African slaves in the colonies to the north. They signed on as indentured servants before departing from Minorca, but were forced into slavery after arriving in Florida. The story centers around the adventures of a young Minorcan man and his sweetheart.
