From Harvey River : A Memoir of My Mother and Her Island Paperback
Lorna Goodison's family made their home in the Jamaican village to which her great-grandfather gave his name: Harvey River.
Her mother Doris was a big-hearted lover of big stories and raised Lorna on tales of their family's - and Jamaica's - history.
Gorgeously written with unashamed joy, From Harvey River weaves together memories with island folklore to create a vivid and irresistible story of mothers and daughters, family, and the ties that bind us to home.
