Publisher's Summary

Capturing the distinct rhythms of Jamaican life and dialect, Nicole Dennis-Benn pens a tender hymn to a world hidden among pristine beaches and the wide expanse of turquoise seas.
At an opulent resort in Montego Bay, Margot hustles to send her younger sister, Thandi, to school. Taught as a girl to trade her sexuality for survival, Margot is ruthlessly determined to shield Thandi from the same fate. When plans for a new hotel threaten their village, Margot sees not only an opportunity for her own financial independence but also perhaps a chance to admit a shocking secret: her forbidden love for another woman. As they face the impending destruction of their community, each woman - fighting to balance the burdens she shoulders with the freedom she craves - must confront long-hidden scars.
From a much-heralded new writer, Here Comes the Sun offers a dramatic glimpse into a vibrant, passionate world most outsiders see simply as paradise.

Oftentimes the best way to tell the truth is through fiction. There are many truths about the real Jamaica in this brilliantly written novel. I couldn't put this book down and bought both the eBook and the Audiobook to ensure continuity. Like many audiobooks narrated by non-Jamaicans, the narrator stumbled on a quite a few nuanced pronunciations that provided context to the story. The narration was otherwise quite good. The publishers and authors should insist on giving their works an authentic accent going forward as other Jamaican audiobooks are similarly flawed. Overall a fascinating story and a great read read.

I feel empty...

Now that this book is finished! It is a very raw and uncensored image of post colonial Jamaica. There are so many layers to this story and the characters; I never knew what would happen next. Great read! Very well read by Bahni as well
