WHAT WE'RE READING // Here Comes the Sun by Nicole Dennis-Benn

Everything that Delores and Margot do is for Thandi. In a community ravaged by poverty and tourism, their best hope for escape is Thandi's education and that she might one day carry them all out, in the way that they now carry the crushing burden of sacrifice for her. This story about the costs of selling themselves for each other, the obligation to and for family, set in the maelstrom of a rapidly changing Jamaica, will leave you wondering, to whom do we owe what?

PS! We have this book in our Bleecker lending library so come check it out!
