"A fascinating story told in Caribbean dialect which tells the flip side of the 1950's Caribbean emigration story.  Joy is left in the Caribbean when her mother migrates to Britain.  Years later, Joy joins her mother and her new family."  Love and loss are the themes.  Separation and awkward reunions are played out against a background of linguistic, cultural and climatic differences.  Economic necessity sometimes forces a mother to do what breaks hearts.

Part of the POWAR series, a family learning project for parents of children of African descent.

Starting points for group discussion and writing are also provided in Who Knows Best (940-0110), support materials to accompany the books in the POWAR series.
