The unexpected surprises in the book Go Ahead, You’re Home: The Caribbean Dream with Grit & Guts are in sync with each chapter.
I am grateful to Booktasters on Twitter who ensured that I got a copy to read and review.
The opening chapter of the book takes the reader back to the year 2000.
‘Life continued with no power failures or computer viruses eating up all data and erasing bank accounts.’
This had me reminiscing on the predicted global crash of the internet then – that never happened.
The pun by the author sets the stage for the unfolding plot. Its details the turmoil in the day-to-day lives of a young girl who becomes a mother of two young children. She has a close knit family that trusts in the power of the LORD God Almighty and the audacity of hope. One sees the immense help of unconditional spouse, friends, and relatives. There is support for the author’s journey in life despite lurking covert secrets.
Each character is well developed with definite personalities. I relate to the odds overcome by some of the characters in the story. Forgiveness, love and hope run through the pages. There is a thirst for a healthy, whole, and balanced environment for personal growth and success.
The plot is great. It is well laid out from the underlying foundation of the problem. When a revolt ensues to seek a permanent solution (or almost), it builds up to the finish. The contributions by two characters (Belladonna and François) collaborate the author’s narration. Deep pain, healing, hope, love, and forgiveness play a role up to adult development of the major players.
Are you at crossroads? Are you looking for best way to raise up a family despite unique challenges that present themselves at different stages of success? This book is for you.
The story is hilarious. I was on the edge of my seat as each character unfolded, making you to want to know what happens to them next.
I give this rating 4.0 stars, awaiting a smashing close to the story line.
