November 21st launch of Chasing the Banyan Wind

Mark your calendars! SF Canada member Bernadette Dyer ‘s novel, Chasing the Banyan Wind, will be officially launched on Nov 21st, 2018, at 61 Heintzman Street in Toronto at 6:00pm (Heintzman Place).

This historical novel is published by LMH Publishing.

In the mid 1920s an English family, Jonathan and Wilemina Gunn, and their two young children, Dunstan and Eliza emigrate to the  Caribbean island of Jamaica. With help from locals they build a home in a remote rural location on the island’s north coast. Previous perceptions of the island do  not prepare them for the reality of the island’s diverse Englishspeaking population that includes Negroes, East Indians, Chinese, Jews, Europeans and Syrians.

This haunting saga exposes race relations, social class distinctions and alliances in a multi-ethnic society, that goes beyond the  unforgiving landscape of war, turmoil, hardships and passions that proliferate even beyond Jamaica’s shores. A sweeping historical novel that addresses World War II, and the involvement of the Commonwealth nations’ allegiance to the ‘Mother  Country’ while taking us on an unforgettable journey that gives credence to the saying, that the more things change, the more they  remain the same.

Chasing the Banyan Wind is available at Amazon, Indigo, Barnes & Noble, and the Toronto library system.

Congratulations, Bernadette!
