October All Over (Caribbean Writers Series) by Maria Roberts-Squires

Set in the aftermath of the Grenadian revolution, October All Over tracks the parallel lives of two generations of Grenadians: Ramona Duprey and Fabian Ferguson, the young lovers; and Norris Duprey and Leila Ferguson - old sweethearts who had separated, but are brought back together by their children's romance. As the revolutionary government splits, the characters play out their own personal dramas against the back-drop of the political divisions and shifting factions. When Ramona is kidnapped, racial and personal prejudices join political differences in a climax which threatens both the individual characters and the country as a whole.
