Publishers Description Joia Fellows is convinced that she wants to get away from her birthplace of Kingston, Jamaica, to seek a better, more promising future in America. Author Jascinth Brokington meticulously pens this journey through family turmoil, complex relationships and experiences-starting from the protagonist's youngest years of comprehension through her teenage years and finally, at her maturity. Readers will experience the multitude of victories throughout the story as Joia finally realizes her place in a culture that was once foreign to her, among people who seldom understand her drive toward the American Dream-realizing, along with Joia, that only God could have so sequentially guided her steps on this journey. Jamaica-Joy: Her American Dream is a wonderful depiction of faith, perseverance and restoration, crossing all cultural barriers.
