Jessamine
Jessamine by Eugenia O'Neal
Expected publication: June 2012
GoodReads Synopsis:

Jessamine tells the story of Grace Hylton, an African-American, who arrives on the Caribbean island of St. Crescens full of doubts about her husband’s political aspirations, doubts about her marriage and doubts about the wisdom of relocating. Her native-born husband, Julian, has lived most of his adult life in the States but has come back to St. Crescens, determined to pull his country out of the cauldron of corruption, nepotism and crime into which the leading political dynasty has taken it.

An architect by training, Julian buys and restores Jessamine, an old Great House. What the Hyltons don’t know is that Jessamine is home to the ghost of Arabella Adams who lived there as a governess during the late 1800s.

Jessamine is told from the alternating viewpoints of the two women – both foreigners, both married to local men. An old injustice binds them across the century that separates them, but can Grace discover its roots before St. Crescens is plunged into violence and chaos?

*Squeling* This book sounds and LOOK awesome.  I can not wait to start reading!

  1. Ohhh it looks like my booklight except yours is purple and I love purple! Also it looks like it is rechargeable?! I go through a ton of batteries on mine so that is a great idea! Your review book does sound awesome. I really love the cover!

  4. I was using my booklight last night and decided I need a new one. I think the battery is dying. It wasn't as bright as it has been in the past. It's just a plain white one. I didn't know they come in colors. Will have to check out the other possibilities!
