London, 1960. Rose is looking for a new start. Thousands of miles away from her Caribbean home, she scrapes together money to send for her children while adjusting to a strange, new world.

When Jack meets Rose at a bus stop, a new and unexpected future unfolds…

“A masterpiece on so many levels. The author’s storytelling skills are easily on a par with Salman Rushdie or Toni Morrison.” (Amazon)
“I think there was not a single human emotion I did not feel whilst reading it. When I finished the novel, there was a tear in my eye; a tear of joy, of gratitude for the magnificent experience.” (Amazon)
