How long would it be before he returned to his island home to fulfill his destiny, and claim his heart s desire still oblivious of his affection?

The fateful events of 9/11 stir in him a profound desire to unlock the vaults of history. Private investigators unearth his father living good in London, a successful man with haunting secrets of a past life hidden from his loving family ... pictures buried in an attic ... a grandmother on a nearby island grieving her recently departed husband who d never seen his grandson ...

All the while, his relentless ambition profoundly reshapes his goals, his life, and just might redefine a generation.

A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale

A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale
Price
34.45 BBD

A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale A Novel By Lorrimer Burford Underpinned by common Jamaican themes, A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale tells the story of a young man intent on saving an aspect of his heritage that is dying- the storytelling. He is heavily influenced by his father's skill at relating these stories.When his family migrates, he comes face to face with the possibility of losing this part of his heritage-forever. By merging these tales with the story of this young man, Burford skilfully creates a supernatural synthesis which captures and tantalizes the reader. ______________________ Having read Lorrimer Burford's "A Jamaican Storyteller's Tale," I feel proud to be a country bumpkin. I am even more proud because the settings of the tales are all from the parish of my birth. The duppy stories are intricately, yet easily woven and are guaranteed to give even the experienced reader goosebumps. Thank you for causing me to relive my rich cultural heritage. I wish that all who read this magnificent work will want to know more about Jamaican folklore and will tell their own stories to keep our oral traditions alive. OLIVER SAMUELS, Actor, Performer

On an inward-looking island dominated by the Catholic Church, John Lestrade mourns both the death of friends and the inauthentic, suffocating quality of his own life.

Andreas Prescod is a professor at the University of Pennsylvania following the collapse of his career as a celebrated archaeologist and the locator of two mummies, one in Egypt, and one in Barbados. Unfortunately, his discoveries created a maelstrom of controversy over the origin of these finds, thus destroying his credibility. Quite unexpectedly, the government approaches Andreas for his assistance in a covert operation to obtain information regarding the activities of a company in Antarctica owned by Roger Branniff, his former father-in-law. Andreas s wife was lost on an expedition six years earlier and is presumed dead; however, new information leads him to believe she may still be alive. He embarks on a dangerous journey only to find that neither the past nor the future are what he believed them to be.

Even worse, he realizes he never really knew his wife, Eurydice, who continues to haunt his dreams. A Voice from the Tomb is a thought-provoking work of fiction...or is it reality?

Young people need to cope in a variety of settings, including school, home, peer groups and the workplace, and with a range of life problems such as examinations and parental divorce. This thoroughly revised and updated new edition of Adolescent Coping presents the latest research and applications in the field of coping. It highlights the ways in which coping can be measured and, in particular, details a widely used adolescent coping instrument.

Topics include the different ways in which girls and boys cope, coping in the family, how culture and context determine how young people cope, decisional coping, problem solving and social coping, with a particular emphasis on practice. Each topic is considered in light of past and recent research findings and each chapter includes quotations from young people. While topics such as depression, eating disorders, self-harm and grief and loss are addressed, there is a substantial focus on the positive aspects of coping, including an emphasis on resilience and the achievement of happiness. In addition to the wide-ranging research findings that are reported, many of the chapters consider implications and applications of the relevant findings with suggestions for the development of coping skills and coping skills training.

Adolescent Coping will be of interest to students of psychology, social work, sociology, education and youth and community work as well as to an audience of parents, educators and adolescents.

Adolphus A Tale & the Slave Son

Adolphus A Tale & the Slave Son
Price
65.65 BBD

The Caribbean Heritage Series is designed to publish historic re-publications of Trinidad Literary Roots and comprises four Trinidadian novels published between 1838 and 1907. This second volume in the series presents two novels, Adolphus, a Tale and The Slave Son. Adolphus was first published in 1853 and was probably written by a Trinidadian mulatto, thus making it the first Trinidadian, and possibly the first West Indian, novel written by a mulatto and the first novel written by someone born and reared in Trinidad. A dramatic nineteenth-century tale, originally published in the newspapers of the day, Adolphus, traces the adventures of a mulatto son of a black slave women raped by a white man. Raised by a kind Spanish-Trinidadian padre, Adolphus grows into a handsome, well-educated, noble character. Later falling in love with Antonia Romelia, he manages to rescue her from a villainous kidnaper and they flee to Venezuela where they are free to marry. The Slave Son was originally published in 1854 by Chapman and Hall, and according to the author's foreword, it was inspired by Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin and was written to support the abolitionist movement in the Unit
