Queenie Bligh's neighbours do not approve when she agrees to take in Jamaican lodgers, but Queenie doesn't know when her husband will return, or if he will come back at all. What else can she do?

Boring

by GingerBread on Jul 17, 2009

This book is full of things we have all heard before. It is boring and it is hard to keep the characters straight. Don't waste your time. More

Jamaican imigrants move to England after WW II , hoping to find jobs and a better life, instead face racial and cultural discrimination. Each character's vioce is clear and distinct as the story progresses. I think this is Levy's first book. Wow! More
