Description
"Lineage" is a story of Jamaican politics and history, a Jamaican family, and Jeddah. The book covers a century of nomadic, immigrant life that touches three states and Jamaica. The country typically known for tourism and Bob Marley is unveiled in its raw, truest form. Although the story is widely entangled in chaos, abuse, and neglect, "Lineage" is a memoir of liberation. "Lineage" is an intricate walk through a historical perspective of Jamaican politics, the Adamson family tree, and how these worlds collide. Over the course of several lives the reader will see a powerful Jamaican family, crippled by the Cold War, begin to build a foundation in a new land.
