The novel is a colourful patchwork of observations of life in 1960s rural
Jamaica, as seen through the eyes of a young girl. Held together by the
sure and simple voice of a child, this powerful narrative is interspersed
with the whisper of adult reflection, rendering the accounts at once
sensuous and disarmingly honest.
Inhabiting an elusive space between what is said and what is felt, what
is conveyed and what is perceived, silence becomes a metaphor of rage
and fear, of loneliness and contentment, confusion and clarification in
these songs that explore social change and individual growth.
