About the Author

MARLEN SUYAPA BODDEN is a lawyer at The Legal Aid Society, the nation's oldest and largest law firm for the poor, in New York City. She drew on her knowledge of modern and historical slavery, human trafficking, and human rights abuses to write The Wedding Gift, her first novel.


"Stunning debut-page- turning-powerful story." --Publishers Weekly starred review "A potent debut." --Good Housekeeping "An inspiring read for historical-fiction fans." --Booklist "Passionate...a good choice for readers who like a fast-paced historical story." --Library Journal "Gripping innuendo, mystery, surprise, shrewd insight and murder ..." --Ebony Magazine "Fascinating, intriguing-a great story!" --Kathleen Grissom, New York Times bestselling author of The Kitchen House "Powerful and absorbing." --Diane McKinney-Whetstone, author of Tumbling "The strength of the novel is its slave narrative tone and its ability to demonstrate the pain of being owned by another human being. Many have heard of slavery; few know this story. It's too important to overlook." --Daniel Black, author of Twelve Gates to the City
