Me Dying Trial by Patricia Powell
Book DescriptionSet in Jamaica, Me Dying Trial is Patricia Powell's masterful debut novel. Gwennie Augusta Glaspole, a schoolteacher, is trapped in an unhappy marriage and quickly saddled with six children. Resisting cultural expectations of playing dutiful wife and mother, Gwennie struggles in a loveless, often abusive, relationship, eventually relocating to America. Dealing with issues of religion, sexuality, immigration, domestic violence, and gender inequality, this is a remarkable first novel.
