Frightening or Intense Scenes: There is an attempted but not successful rape early and a fairly brutal attack late in the book. There is also a drunken father who nearly beats an innocent child.

Finally a book about love and life that does not require a woman to be raped in order for the audience to be entertained.

Set in the beauty and turbulence, this is a wonderful story about love, loss, family, identity and coming to voice. Margaret Cezair-Thompson proves you can write well about hard and painful realities without gratuitous violence.

The voices of the four women in this book, Oni, Esme, Ida and May, carry the story; but their lives are deeply affected by their men. Colorism, race, colonialism and US neo-colonialism including the CIA attempts to overthrown the Manley regime in the 1970s, all serve as a backdrop to this marvelous pageturner that, once you finish reading you will want to go back and reread.

I couldn't put it down.
