In the mid 1920s an English family, Jonathan and Wilemina Gunn, and their two young children, Dunstan and Eliza emigrate to the

Caribbean island of Jamaica. With help from locals they build a home in a remote rural location on the island’s north coast. Previous perceptions of the island do

not prepare them for the reality of the island’s diverse Englishspeaking population that includes Negroes, East Indians, Chinese,Jews, Europeans and Syrians.

This haunting saga exposes race relations, social class distinctions and alliances in a multi-ethnic society, that goes beyond the

unforgiving landscape of war, turmoil, hardships and passions that proliferate even beyond Jamaica’s shores.

A sweeping historical novel that addresses World War II, and the involvement of the Commonwealth nations’ allegiance to the ‘Mother

Country’ while taking us on an unforgettable journey that gives credence to the saying, that the more things change, the more they

remain the same.
