The True History of Paradise, Paperback

The True History of Paradise Paperback



From the acclaimed author of THE PIRATE'S DAUGHTER comes a story of three women born into the divided, troubled paradise of Jamaica. Easter, 1981. With Jamaica in a state of emergency, the Landing family gathers to bury one of its own.

For Monica Landing, who had not spoken to her daughter for fifteen years, the death of Lana is the cruellest kind of loss. For Lana's youngest sister, Jean, it is an imcomprehensible tragedy. All she knows is that her beloved homeland holds no future for her.

But flight means crossing a landscape where soldiers turned executioners and armed gangs rule.

It means making her way through the memories that engulf her, with perhaps the only man she has ever loved by her side. THE TRUE HISTORY OF PARADISE captures the grace, beauty and brutality that are indelible parts of the Jamaican experience.
