A dark, beautiful, and fantastic novel that follows a family of Jamaican women with past traumas, secrets, and the desire for a better future. The further the novel dove into family secrets and relationships, colorism, and the contrast between the wealth of a high-end hotel and the poverty of its employees, the faster I turned the page. The lengths some will go to in the hopes of creating a better life–even if that means possibly destroying themselves and the ones they love—are gripping and heartbreaking, and Nicole Dennis-Benn has permission to break my heart any time.
