What a wonderful book. I loved the way the author told the stories from each of the characters perspective - from the Jamaicans Hortense and Gilbert who dreamed of living in London separately but ended up there together initially for convenience: to the English couple Bernard and Queenie who had a less than idyllic marriage. The second world war and a black man named Michael Roberts were the catalysts for all their lives to change and it was both interesting and emotional as we read about love, loss, unexplained absence, bigotry, pregnancy and in the end a huge connection which was forged between them all. Thanks for sharing Jean-Sol, well recommended.
