Easter 1981. With Jamaica in a state of emergency, the Landing family gathers to bury one of its own. For Monica Landing, who had not spoken to her daughter in fifteen years, the death of Lana is the cruellest kind of loss. For Lana's younger sister, Jean, it is an incomprehensible tragedy. Her beloved homeland holds no future for her now, but flight means crossing a landscape where armed gangs rule. In this time of apocalypse, past and present merge in Jean's remembrances of childhood and the guiding voices of her ancestors that tell of hardship and struggle, love and survival...
