Her misgivings lead her deep into the murky waters of Jamaica’s turbulent past, opening up a Pandora’s box of atrocities dating back to the 1970s, when the country was caught in a vicious armed power struggle between opposing factions.As Monique battles to come to terms with her loss and make sense of her aunt’s death, there are powerful forces at work trying to thwart her, protecting a secret, which if uncovered, would change the course of history in Jamaica – and put her in grave danger.

But she is prepared to risk her life to expose the perpetrators, for therein lies a greater truth about herself and her roots.Reach for a Different Sun explores the nebulous zone where politics meets both morality and self-interest, seen through the eyes of a young woman caught up in an epic voyage of self-discovery.- Runner-up at a new writers’ novel competition at the Winchester Writers’ Conference.- ‘An impressive debut.’ Sally Hare, novelist.
