And on a deeper level, this book explores a multitude of women's issues through the lives of these 3 women - women's health issues, educational gaps, economic disparities, immigration and its effect on families, to name a few. Ms. Peart manages to uncover these issues in her book in a tender, non-judgmental, and transparent way, leaving it to the reader to pick a side...or not.
Somerset Grove, is like many of the wonderful Jamaican dishes the author describes so aptly in her book. It is absolutely succulent, very spicy, perfectly sweet, and like all good meals, transports you to a place and time when you felt welcome to truly enjoy a good thing.
The scenary painted beautiful pictures that make you long for a trip to Jamica. A tribute to all mothers and daughter the most precious and complicated relationship ever imagined. A retrospect on the need for open and honest communication. This books points out what you don't share can impact your family generationally. These mothers thought their mistakes would be forgotten if not spoken of but soon learn their mistakes and their failure to acknowledge said mistakes impacted every facet of theirs and their daughters lives.
Thanks for making me think of my love for my daughters and mother.
I think I am booking a flight to Kingston. Yeah, man!
