A “GUT-WRENCHING AND GORGEOUSLY LYRICAL DEBUT NOVEL” PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
From Montserrat in the Caribbean to Hackney, East London, comes a tale spanning decades with a distinct and fiery spice.
Jinx’s life has been destroyed by her part in her mother’s murder. Trapped inside a prison of her own making, she lives alone, separated from her young son, who is being raised by his father. When Lemon, a long lost friend, turns up on her doorstep wanting to put the record straight, Jinx realises this may be her last chance to come clean about what really happened. However, Lemon has secrets of his own to share, and a story to tell that strips away the layers of the past, laying bare his own part in the circumstances leading up to that final tragic night. His visit and their unlikely friendship, take us on an unpredictable journey, through deception and betrayal, to the core of who they are.
What Jinx and Lemon need is redemption, but in order to have this, they have to first find the courage to accept the full and devastating truth.
