In her eighth book, Carmen Barclay Subryan has pushed the boundaries of her writing to another level after safely writing about what she knows and successfully canvassing through the genre of historical fiction mainly.

The book is divided into two contrasting parts consisting of chapters one to six where she remembers and looks forward to enjoying some of those good old days and chapters seven to twelve consisting of reasons why she could not come back home including detailed accounts of jealousy and envy among people, infrastructure problems, race relations, and the aftermath of racial conflagration in the 60’s some of it, she says, will make your stomach churn with bile of anger and distaste.
