Overview

Three generations of the women in the Wright family all dream of leaving their home in a small Jamaican town, but each woman encounters obstacles that keep her from living the life she wants.

Angelique, strong-willed and adventurous, chooses between her daughter and opportunity as she contemplates leaving her behind to move to Canada. After experiencing heartbreak, proud matriarch Ruby is determined to see that no one ever has a reason to look down on her or her family, even if it means alienating the ones she loves. Granddaughter Carmen is torn between her feelings of resentment and longing, as she strives to be independent while trying to build a relationship with her distant mother.

Traveling between the tropical heat of their Jamaican homeland and the cold promise of Canada, the women struggle to resolve the conflicts within themselves and between each other.

Excellent book! I felt like I was visiting old friends each time I opened the book. I didn't want it to end. I'm looking forward to reading Ms. Peart's future books. She has a new fan!
