About the Book:
Oprah Magazine calls it one of 16 Books by Caribbean Authors to add to your Reading List. JAAWP Finalist. Silver Medallist. “A perfect read. ‘The Girl with the Hazel Eyes’ is well-written and compelling. I give this novel 5/5 stars.” – Bekah’s Bookshelves.
A beautifully written coming-of-age tale that examines the bonds of womanhood, feminism and pre-independence life on a small island.
Almost fifty years after Susan Taylor was exiled from Barbados for her famous whistle-blowing novel, ‘The Unspeakable Truth’, she contacts a young writer to pen her biography. Susan is crotchety and unpleasant but Lia Davis is broke so she has no choice but to stay and write Susan’s biography.
As Lia starts to unravel the reclusive author’s life, she realizes that some things just don’t add up. Susan has been hiding a massive secret for decades and Lia is determined to find out what it is. The Girl with the Hazel Eyes is an endearing novel that tugs at your heart with its examination of love, lies, and loyalty.
