Under the Tamarind Tree: A Novel by Rosaliene Bacchus

BOOK
REVIEWS

CARIBBEAN FICTION


In this compelling story, a man who has endured much
tragedy as a boy reaps the bitter fruit of deceit sown by his
deceased father, threatening all he loves.

While growing up in British Guiana, Richard Cheong wrestles
with guilt after his younger brother is murdered and his
mother’s death shortly thereafter. As the lone surviving son,
Richard believes that only a son can redeem his tormented
soul and end his life of poverty and servitude to his father’s
sister.

After he marries the beautiful and headstrong Gloria, she
bears him three girls. But in 1953 as Richard awaits the birth
of what he hopes will be his first son, the British governor
orchestrates a troop invasion, suspends the Guianese
Constitution, and disbands the leftist government. As a
chain of events unfurls that splinters Richard’s life and alters
the course of his country, political unrest rages across the
colony. Now Richard faces another threat as Gloria falls
under the influence of his conniving eldest sister who has
despised him since childhood. Will Gloria betray him or stay
with him forever?

GUYANESE-CANADIAN ARTIST

Jesus said to his Apostles: "Do not think that I came to
bring peace to the earth; I did not come to bring peace
but a sword. For I came to set a man against his father,
and a daughter against her mother, and a
daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a
man's enemies will be the members of his household.
~ MATTHEW 10:34-36, NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE
