Review of Sea Tears by Floella Benjamin

Sea Tears  by Floella Benjamin  pub  Oct 2011    9781847800589

Jasmine was happy in a place she loved and knew until her parents announced they were moving 4,000 miles away, to Barbados.

This is a story about friendships, family, trust and a passion that will stop at nothing to return home.

In Floella Benjamin's first novel Sea of Tears, she shows just how tough it is moving away from the place you've known all your life, you home, your friends, your treasured childhood. A blank canvas with people expecting you to start afresh in another country, when the only place you want to be is back home - wherever that is!

I was captivated by this book, - I didn't want to put it down because I wanted to see what was around the corner, waiting for Jasmine and I.
