Here Comes the Sun

by Nicole Dennis-Benn
£12.99   hardback  Oneworld Publications (2017)

Here Comes the Sun by Nicole Dennis-Benn A finalist for the New York Public Library Fiction Award
A Grand Prix Littéraire of the Association of Caribbean Writers Selection
 
In this radiant, highly anticipated debut, a cast of unforgettable women battle for independence while a maelstrom of change threatens their Jamaican village.
 
Capturing the distinct rhythms of Jamaican life and dialect, Nicole Dennis-Benn pens a tender hymn to a world hidden among pristine beaches and the wide expanse of turquoise seas. At an opulent resort in Montego Bay, Margot hustles to send her younger sister, Thandi, to school. Taught as a girl to trade her sexuality for survival, Margot is ruthlessly determined to shield Thandi from the same fate.
 
When plans for a new hotel threaten the destruction of their community, each woman - fighting to balance the burdens she shoulders with the freedom she craves - must confront long-hidden scars. From a much-heralded new writer, Here Comes the Sun offers a dramatic glimpse into a vibrant, passionate world most outsiders see simply as paradise.
