Overview

Reaper of Souls - is a gripping family saga of love and loss. With fictional characters based on a tragic event in Jamaica - A train crash that stole so many lives on 1st September 1957.

The Kendal train crash is Jamaica's Holocaust, and put the island firmly on the world map, setting macabre records and traumatizing an entire nation.

The attempt to write this story was not to fill the gaps but to demonstrate through all the heart break that the characters in this book can triumph over tragedy - just as a nation did 50 plus years ago.

You won't be able to put this book down - as one reader called "un put downable".

There are many unexpected twists and turns in this novel - Nothing turns out the way you would expect it. - That is how life is.

If you mention the words "Kendal Crash" to any Jamaican person over fifty they will know this story of woe and sadness. The most you will hear about Kendal is the many ghost stories that are familiar to all. Many of those who rode the train that night have since died or survive in obscurity:

Where is Kendal exactly? It lies smack in the center of Jamaica, a tiny town nestled just outside Mandeville where many "returnees" now reside.

Written with love and humor this sad story will not only make you cry but you will laugh and sing with the vibrant characters that come alive in this story.

They will stay with you long after you close the pages of Reaper of Souls
