Item description for Arch of Fire by Barbara Lalla...
Against the wide sweep of Jamaica's past, Arch of Fire sets a cast of starkly distinctive and apparently disparate characters who turn out to have families that have been entangled for centuries. Haunting histories emerge in sharp relief on the fiery background of Jamaica's evolving society. In its celebration of individual displays of passion and heroism triggered by national events, Arch of Fire is a gripping family saga.
