Here Comes The Sun is one of the best debut books this year, and I am happy to finally have a copy. So today, no long reviews or discussions, just a quick summary and feature of this book that has been on my TBR and want to read list for months.
Goodreads Summary: Capturing the distinct rhythms of Jamaican life and dialect, Nicole Dennis- Benn pens a tender hymn to a world hidden among pristine beaches and the wide expanse of turquoise seas. At an opulent resort in Montego Bay, Margot hustles to send her younger sister, Thandi, to school. Taught as a girl to trade her sexuality for survival, Margot is ruthlessly determined to shield Thandi from the same fate. When plans for a new hotel threaten their village, Margot sees not only an opportunity for her own financial independence but also perhaps a chance to admit a shocking secret: her forbidden love for another woman. As they face the impending destruction of their community, each woman—fighting to balance the burdens she shoulders with the freedom she craves—must confront long-hidden scars. From a much-heralded new writer, Here Comes the Sun offers a dramatic glimpse into a vibrant, passionate world most outsiders see simply as paradise.
I really hope I that I will love this book. For some strange reason, I have high expectations for this one. Has anyone read this as yet? How was it? Please no spoilers, just share your overall impressions, thanks ever so much.
Take care until Friday or Sunday. Let’s vote, here is a quick poll, should I continue with Happy Friday posts? And please feel free to discuss any suggestions or recommendations in the comments. Let’s chat.
