Zeandra is a powerful, impacting novel that is written for readers who love captivating books. It is about the human drama behind Caribbean living. It is about a young girl's spiritual journey through trials, tribulations and ultimately, redemption.
Zeandra is about a Caribbean village where skin drums rattled and old tribal dances brought joy to its people; where bamboo-cane lanterns spit flames towards the sky on Tambalay Nights and traditional customs were good. But signs in the universe warned that life was changing dramatically. The children of the village were getting tired of parental inconsistencies and things were beginning to fall apart. The village was getting too old to raise its children the way it used to. New ways were necessary to help elders communicate more effectively with youngsters. If not, youngsters would continue to lose their manners and disrespect for age would begin to grow like an ulcer where love once bloomed. Like all the great kingdoms of time gone by, the village was destroying itself from the inside. It was time for change.
The story is set in Old Road, St. Kitts and Nevis. Old Road is a historical town. It was the first British settlement in the Caribbean, in 1623, making St. Kitts, the "mother colony" of the British West Indies, in 1624.
The author, Caszie Hart, was born in Old Road. He attended college in New York and upon graduation earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in Mathematics. While in college, although he was majoring in math, he had to take an art course as part of the core requirements for his degree. He took painting and was terrible at it, barely earning enough points to get a passing grade. However, in addition to math he loved English (both language and literature) and decided to do with words what he couldn't do with a brush, paint and canvas. Zeandra is the result of that endeavor. It is fiction. It is part of his dreams, fantasies and recollection of some early childhood events in Old Road. You are sure to enjoy it.
