Fruit Of The Lemon
Faith, a young woman struggling to make her way in the world, is faced with a number of disappointments in her life. When her parents suggest a trip to Jamaica, Faith is unsure – but the journey leads to discoveries that restore her missing purpose.
Faith Jackson fixes herself up with a great job in TV and the perfect flatshare. But neither is that perfect – and nor are her relations with her overbearing, though always loving family. Furious and perplexed when her parents announce their intention to retire back home to Jamaica, Faith makes her own journey there, where she is immediately welcomed by her Aunt Coral, keeper of a rich cargo of family history. Through the weave of her aunt’s storytelling a cast of characters unfolds stretching back to Cuba and Panama, Harlem and Scotland, a story that passes through London and sweeps through continents.
