Format: Paperback
The Swinging bridge is one of my favourite books; the storytelling and description is beautiful. I identify with this book since I'm from Trinidad and I know which all girls school she is talking about. A definite read for anyone who wants to feel what life was like in Trinidad back in the days :)

Format: Paperback
A story of a girl, a family, a culture. I learned a lot about Trinidad and Tobago from this book, and I was born on the island and lived there for the first 23 years of my life. The writing is honest and courageous. The characters are alive. The sense of place is strong. The dialog is authentic. There are several descriptive passages that are truly beautiful. This is a book with heart and soul.

A must read! Insightful and touching. Diaspora is a subject not many people are familiar about. The effects of migrations are detailed in a very insightful and emotional way. An excellent read.
