Synopsis

Aunt Jen by Paulette Ramsay

Sunshine, a young Jamaican girl, is desperate to know and understand her identity. Written as a series of letters to her absent mother, Aunt Jen traces the changing attitudes of a child entering adulthood as she begins to realize and accept the truth behind her mother's departure. A painfully one-sided correspondence through which Sunshine hopes to understand her own past, Aunt Jen reveals the complex inheritance we pass on to our children.

Reviews

?Aunt Jen is a deft, heart-wrenching, instructively imaginative and ultimately timeless representation of an intimate corner of Jamaican social history.?-Edward Baugh
