A tongue in cheek novel, steeped with raging, raw emotion that is guranteed to raise many eyebrows.

A young mother who is afraid to move forward, afraid to let go. HELEN - Brought up to believe that, "Anything darker than a grain of sand is no good." Yet she falls in love with a dark-skinned, dread-locked Rasta she wants to hate. MARJORIE - The eldest, is trapped by routine, low self-esteem and bulima. She is still involved with her re-married ex-husband of eleven years. Unlikely friends, Nadia, Helen and Marjorie, as only real friends can, empower each other to love , trust and explore their passions. Together they stand tall, with the warmth of the sun on their faces. They are strong, proud Jamaican women-Ladies Jamaican.

A good read--Authentically Jamaican! Dec 28, 2008
I enjoyed the book which had good elements of drama and a solid story about sisterhood. You can tell that this piece is written by someone who has spent time on the island, the imagery is colorful and true to life and it tackled some real topics such as the "color" issue, class and domestic violence. I would have liked to see more engaging writing but otherwise it is a solid read.
