Review
"Set in Jamaica, Greenwichtown is the story of Fay Myrtle, an innocent girl who lives in a shack outside a Jamaican plantation. An older sister takes her from that village to live in the inner-city ghettos of Greenwichtown. There she attends school, and her inner life thrives despite abuse by her sister and the squalor surrounding her. As she struggles to come of age, she is caught up in a web of betrayal and is devastated by the death of the man she loves. Unwilling to submit to her despair, especially for the sake of her newborn twins, Fay "goes foreign," seeking a job as a domestic abroad and relinquishing her babies to the care of her sister."--BOOK JACKET
