My son Thomas, who is publishing this book, tells me, it is customary at this place in a novel to give the reader a little taste of the story that is held within these pages. As your storyteller, I am to convey that this tale is set in Jamaica during the last turbulent years of slavery and the early years of freedom that followed. July is a slave girl who lives upon a sugar plantation named Amity and it is her life that is the subject of this tale.

He is one of the most gifted footballers the UK has ever produced, twice breaking the British transfer record, but he courts controversy in equal measure. Most famously, he was dropped by England for missing a drugs test, and his subsequent eight-month ban made front-page news.
