ABOUT THE BOOK
An Intimate Guyana Journey
An Intimate Guyana Journey is a spellbinding tale of love and legacy with characters as rich and diverse as the landscape.
Set in the lush and wild coast of Guyana, An Intimate Guyana Journey is a coming-of-age story about a boy uncovering his roots and discovering his destiny, and an old woman’s quest to make peace with her family. When Vernon’s mother falls gravely ill, he stays with the owner of the plantation where his father works, an old woman named Madeline. While he is with her and as the story progresses, Madeline slowly uncovers her family’s history—an intricate, intimate tale of love and loss—and the truth about her connection to Vernon’s mother.
Spanning four generations, roughly a hundred years, from 1873–1972, the story presses upon love’s infinite and healing nature and the power of compassion and understanding.
