MARIE-THERESE BROWNE'S "OLGA - A DAUGHTER'S TALE" (REVIEW)

MARIE-THERESE BROWNE'S "OLGA - A DAUGHTER'S TALE" (REVIEW)



Marie-Therese's account of life in Jamaica in the 1900's through the eyes of a London born and bred family is remarkable. Written in the combining style of letters and diary entries the detail is beautiful and the story one that is timeless. The trials asserted on women are indicative of what life was like during those times and a part of the history of the author herself.

I truly enjoyed this book. Anyone interested in the life of early Jamaica and the 1900's will definitely want to read this book.
