A deeply poignant and intense tale…
Walker creates a captivating tale of courage, strength, and perseverance taking readers on a family’s journey to overcome a devastating loss. Life for Murna Moreland, a young Jamaican homemaker and mother of five, is content. But when her husband dies in a tragic accident, Murna finds herself struggling to make ends meet. Unable to find any job, she decides to immigrate to America. But leaving children behind is not an option, especially when there is no one to take care of them. The narrative is uneven, with the author wrapping up some parts in a haste. But the crisp writing and human quotient of the story keep readers invested. Courage, resilience of human spirit, acceptance, identity, and transformation are prevalent themes in this story. Readers follow Murna as she struggles to pick between leaving her young children alone and immigrating to other country in search of a better future for them. The narrative treats her sympathetically, and her struggles are portrayed with conviction. Readers will find themselves rooting for her throughout the book. A quick, moving must-read.
