The Secret Diaries of Charles Ignatius Sancho by Paterson Joseph is a historical fiction novel that tells the story of Charles Ignatius Sancho, a remarkable man who lived in 18th-century London. Sancho was born on a slave ship and was brought to England as a young boy. He was later sold to a family in Greenwich, where he worked as a servant. Despite his humble beginnings, Sancho was able to rise above his circumstances and become a respected member of society.

The novel is based on Sancho’s real-life experiences, and it portrays his life in vivid detail. The book is divided into three parts, each of which covers a different period in Sancho’s life. The first part of the book focuses on Sancho’s childhood and his early years in Greenwich. The second part of the book covers his time as a valet to the Duke of Montagu, where he was able to develop his talents as a writer and composer. The third part of the book covers his life as a merchant and his involvement in the abolitionist movement.

Sancho’s many relationships are vividly portrayed in the book. It includes letters between Sancho and his wife-to-be, Anne Osborne, which provide insight into their deep love for each other. The novel also portrays Sancho’s relationships with his employers, including the Duke of Montagu and the Earl of Exeter. These relationships are complex and nuanced, and they provide a window into the social dynamics of 18th-century London.

Ditto for the book’s portrayal of Sancho’s artistic talents. Sancho was a gifted writer and composer, and the book includes examples of his work. The novel also portrays Sancho’s short-lived attempts to act as Othello, which provide insight into the limited opportunities available to Black actors in 18th-century London.
