Summary

Adamine Bustamante is born in Jamaica, inside one of the island’s last leper colonies. When she goes to a Revivalist Church, she discovers her gift of warning. But no one has bothered to warn Adamine that when she migrates to England her prophecies of hurricanes and earthquakes will no longer be respected. People will think she is crazy and lock her away in a mental hospital. Now, an old woman, Adamine wants to tell her own story but she must compete with Mr. Writer Man, the novelist who is twisting her words for his own book, and Adamine doesn’t know why. In a story about magic and migration, about stories and story-telling, we discover it is never one person who owns a story, or who has the right to tell it.

Tough listen

I wanted to like this book because it came highly recommended, but I was disappointed. I found the story disjointed and difficult to follow and the characters didn't draw me in. I did listen to this book, so I do wonder if the narration, which was done with an appropriate Caribbean accent, was what caused me to not enjoy the book.

Not full book.

I bought this audiobook believing that it would narrate the entirety of "The Last WarnerWoman" and was disappointed to learn that it ended a little more than half way through. Not worth your money at all.
