Beneath The Golden Mango Tree by Trish St.Hill
Ambitious and idealistic, Felicia Francois enters the dynamic metropolis of Brooklyn New York, with a strong antipathy for change and a conviction to maintain her West Indian traditions. Through the backdrop of a special friendship, Felicia engulfs us with her humor, her tears and ultimately her successes. This Novel compels us to experience Felicia's coming of age with the full realization and embracing of her ancestral Garifuna heritage. As she blossoms into full womanhood, we revel in her acceptance of the varied shades of life that teaches a lesson in pride, ambition and total acceptance. But life's tumult gently swayed her towards an assimilation process, which forces her to be stronger and more buoyant, as she connects to a misplaced part of her heritage and forges a sisterhood of differences, acceptance and unlimited love. Just when she seems to be in full command of her life, she learns of a devastating secret which threatens to destroy her to the core. Will Felicia's resilience help her to weather the tides of betrayal and embrace forgiveness, or will she plummet to the depths of despair and insanity?
Excerpt from the book
As she basked in the tranquility of the moonlit night, she watched with a hint of melancholy as the little children from her neighborhood danced and sang beneath the moon’s illumination. The rock protruded far enough from the gigantic branches of the Golden Mango tree, to allow Felicia sufficient lighting assistance from the moon to practice her favorite pastime, writing poetry. Her senses were heightened as she observed the minutest details and sounds of her surroundings.
