From Rum to Roots by Lloyd G. Francis

CTC Book Tours is working with author Lloyd Francis on a book tour for his fictional novel, "From Rum to Roots". I you to join the tour!

I have included the book cover and synopsis below.

The books for this tour are offered as either paperback or eBook. The tour is scheduled to begin on October 12th and will run through November 15th.


It is 1937 in Portland Cottage, Jamaica, and Linton McMann, the bastard son of plantation owner Major Blaine, feels resentment for a father who brutally hides his paternity. Feeling guilty, Major Blaine moves Linton to a coveted distillery position, where he learns to make rum, the Blaine livelihood for 100 years.

Linton and Sheila, an abandoned girl, are raised by Aunt Cordy. Sheila collects herbs and roots for Aunt Cordy and before Cordy dies she teaches Sheila a secret recipe for a powerful roots tonic: an enchanted drink with a preternatural past stretching back to Africa.
Civil upheaval spreads through Jamaica in 1938, and violence erupts on the Blaine plantation. When Sheila later dies in childbirth a grief-stricken Linton moves to the United States in search of a new life.

Ashley (ashleylamar) Thanks Jovon! I appreciate your promotion on this. Mr. Francis has been such a great author to work with and the tour is coming along nicely. I'd love to book this one really heavy and get a lot of people on board.
