|When your book matches your nail polish!|
I flew the coup for some much needed rest and relaxation recently. My goal once I arrived at my destination was to move just enough so that no one thought I was dead. I brought The Star Side of Bird Hill by Naomi Jackson with me for some poolside reading.
The Star Side of Bird Hill is set mostly on the island of Barbados. It tells the story of the trials and triumphs of the women in a family from the point of view of the matriarch, her daughter, and the grandchildren. In 304 pages Ms. Jackson poetically addresses mental illness, sexuality, religion, and the bonds of family.
I liked the book a lot and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great read. This is the author’s first novel, but hopefully not her last. You can check out her website here.
