exploitation of women in 19th century Jamaica is explored throughout the novel as the characters try to atone with the ghosts of their past.The first chapter starts off a bit confusing It front loads all of the characters and many events making it hard to separate who from who and what from what But after that short introduction, everything fell into place The Jamaican dialogue was hard to understand sometimes, but I could figure out what was happening overall.I received an advance readers copy through Netgalley and Edelweiss Opinions are my own BOOK REVIEW 2 3 20Did a video review of
