Description

Capturing the distinct rhythms of Jamaican life and dialect, Nicole Dennis-Benn pens a tender hymn to a world hidden among pristine beaches and the wide expanse of turquoise seas. At an opulent resort in Montego Bay, Margot hustles to send her younger sister, Thandi, to school. Taught as a girl to trade her sexuality for survival, Margot is ruthlessly determined to shield Thandi from the same fate. When plans for a new hotel threaten their village, Margot sees not only an opportunity for her own financial independence but also perhaps a chance to admit a shocking secret: her forbidden love for another woman. As they face the impending destruction of their community, each woman?fighting to balance the burdens she shoulders with the freedom she craves?must confront long-hidden scars. From a much-heralded new writer, Here Comes the Sun offers a dramatic glimpse into a vibrant, passionate world most outsiders see simply as paradise.

Professional reviews

"A broad cast of female characters will keep listeners chuckling throughout the everyday lives of modern Jamaican women. Bahni Turpin is the perfect narrator to bring to life the musical cadence of Caribbean-accented English. Margot trades sexual favors in order to provide a better future for her younger sibling. When a new hotel development threatens the life everyone has ever known, Margot and her friends scramble to secure their futures. Turpin's narration gives authenticity to the listening experience. Her style especially shines in the humorous scenes as Jamaicans like Dolores deal with bargaining American tourists. Turpin's delivery illuminates the humor and grit of Margot and the other women.
