Overview

"Yes, the morning breeze was a false friend. For one little girl named Goddie, the August breeze of 1945 would never feel the same again."

In Robert Picart's debut novel Goddie, we read the story of Goddie, a young girl born in the mid-1900s in the picturesque Blue Mountains of Jamaica. With the sudden loss of both parents, Goddie finds herself indentured to strangers in order to pay for school. Heartbroken, weary, and alone, she forms a plan to escape to Great Britain as the Windrush movement escalates.

Will Goddie be able to escape the depths of betrayal for good and start over again? Will she succumb to despair? Or will she find the strength to find her place in a new and turbulent world?

About the Author

Robert Picart's affinity for culture, music, and good company began while growing up in Toronto, Canada. As a business consultant, former missionary, and world traveler, Picart is forever an observer and storyteller. What began as a personal project to learn about his mother's life and Jamaican heritage, quickly evolved into his debut novel, Goddie, celebrating the trials and tribulations of an immigrant's journey and what it means to start over from the middle.
