Read full description of the books:
Bucking the despair of modern challenges facing the Caribbean region presented by globalism, the International Monetary Fund, and the failure of many political leaders, this collection of poetry offers a consoling and healing message on such griefs from the Grenadian and Caribbean perspective. The strength of the local people is presented in the particularities of a resilient 8o-year-old woman who embodies the faith of the Caribbeans. The portrait of the end of the Grenadian revolution enhances these celebrations of love, children, and the strength of the Caribbean people.
