Set in Barbados, the novel follows a young boy named Christopher, home for the school holidays at his family’s stately plantation house.

“Its depiction of a lost world of white colonial life, as well as its sensitive portrayal of the pains and pleasures of growing up, give it an enduring value. If, on the one hand, it shows how far Barbados has travelled in less than 50 years, it also recalls the timeless nature of childhood experience and the intensity of feeling that marks our formative years.” – James Ferguson © MEP Publishers | Little Boy Blue | Caribbean Beat Magazine
