really liked it

I loved this book about the results of the hierarchies of colonial Jamaica. It is a prequel to the author's highly acclaimed novel, "No Telephone to Heaven", which I did not like as well..
I really enjoyed how the author interwove Clare's heritage of class/color conscious Jamaica with the Maroon history.. I recently did a presentation about Jamaica's culture and used some info from this excellent novel.
