    Book Description: 


    In a quaint, English-looking rural town on Jamaica’s Southern coast Rose Thorn struggles with her conniving, controlling, abusive husband, Donovan, to claim her right to realize the deferred educational dreams and stunted career ambitions she was forced to put on hold, when Rose had gotten pregnant and had to drop out of school during her final high school year. Laverne Fine struggles with her doubts concerning her lover, Paul’s, true identity and nationality; but Paul’s Brooklyn-based mother has a lead-heavy hand in guarding their family secrets. Wendy Arnold crumples under the escalating obstacles of her long-distance relationship with her Jamaica-based high school sweetheart, Miles. In the express lane to middle-age both want to marry each other and immediately start a family; but neither of these two lovers is willing to uproot. The lives of these three Jamaican women, each with her unique connection to America, are woven into an engrossing tangled web of lies, suspense, infidelity, deceit, spousal abuse and betrayal. Long distance relationships are tested and tried; the true value of female friendships and mentorship is proven; and the advantages of immigration are weighed against the disadvantages.
