‘The Blessings Came Down’ is a narrative of the successes and disappointments faced by a young black girl Elsie, growing up in post emancipation Caribbean. It is a compelling story of a personal life journey where Elsie reminisces about a lifestyle and culture that is fast becoming obsolete whilst addressing issues like religion, family, racism, sexism and triumph over adversity. The book is a light hearted, refreshing read with an inspirational message that will resonate with both young and old.
