About the Book:
From Jamaica to England — An Inspirational True-Life Story. Fascinating family saga about a personal life which has an epic feel about it from Jamaica to England amidst World War II.
As the author’s Jamaican mother, Olga Browney, lay dying she resolved to find out about her mother's past, her family in Jamaica and, of particular importance to the author, who her father was. Information her mother had resolutely refused to share with her.
Through genealogical research, both in Jamaica and the UK, the author discovered her mother’s family saga chronicling three generations of the Browney family’s life in Kingston and London, but writing particularly about her mother, Olga. A kind, naïve and gentle girl, Olga travelled to London from Kingston, Jamaica, in 1939 to stay with a malevolent, alcoholic aunt and intending to remain for only six months. However, world events, personal tragedy and malicious intent all combined to prevent her from returning home to Kingston.
Written in the form of diary entries and letters, Olga — A Daughter's Tale is based on a true story about cruelty, revenge and jealousy inflicted on an innocent young woman and about her moral courage, dignity, resilience and, in particular, love. It is the story of a remarkable woman who, because of circumstances, made a choice, which resulted in her losing contact with her beloved family in Jamaica. That is, until nearly half a century later, when her past caught up with her.
