Overview

A love affair between a British girl and a West Indian soldier in 1960s London has heart-wrenching consequences

When 18-year-old Dot meets Sol, she feels that love has arrived at last. Solomon Arbuthnott is a man who can bring color and warmth to her drab life in 1960s London—and what's more, he is a young, handsome soldier with excellent prospects. He is someone who wants to give her everything she has dreamed of; someone who can promise her blue skies, laughter, sun, and  love. And for a while, life is truly like a song. They stroll hand-in-hand by the Serpentine, dance cheek-to-cheek in Soho's smoky bars, and begin to plan their idyllic future, growing old together in Sol's ancestral home on the island of St. Lucia. But this is 1961, and East End girls don't date West Indian boys, let alone fall in love with them and leave the country. They stay at home and live the life their parents planned for them. Even if it leaves them lonelier than they ever thought possible. Even if it rips their heart in two. Includes book club notes.

    The LAST line of this book will blow you away.  As you follow Do

    The LAST line of this book will blow you away.  As you follow Dot through the one of the hardest, scariest, darkest years of her life you
     will ache for her, cry with her and want so desperately to help her.  
    This is a story about love, the love between a young couple, who should have everything to look forward to together.  They talk
    about their future together in longing detail, the promises made from one to the other, the commitment to always be together.
     It should be so simple....  Sadly it is everything but.  
    This is a story of a white girl from a poor family living in London who falls for a black boy who is visiting with his rich, powerful
    family from an island paradise in the 1960's.  You will see how family can be so cruel and hateful, how the older adults how you
     are suppose to look up to can be so narrow minded and beyond selfish.  You will see how money and the color of a persons
    skin rule over everything else.  You will see a young woman broken beyond repair .... but is she ? 
    This may sound like a bad story and a book you do not want to read but I guarantee that you will be thoroughly captivated
    and when you read the last line, it will all fall into perspective.
