Prepare to be entertained by these recollections of the misadventures of a young girl growing up in semi-rural and urban Jamaica in the 1960s. 'Shadows and Sunshine' takes you back to a magical time when children found pleasure in their own inventions, when the world was simple and enchanting, and childhood perceptions often resulted in amusing distortions of reality. Each adventure is a mixture of mischief, magic, and wonder, from bungling a simple baby-sitting task to escaping from a machete-wielding madman. If you remember the rolling calf, the nanny goat, or your obsession with mangoes, or if you would like to know more about these things, read on. "With its elements of fantasy and its skillful use of language to create vivid images, 'Shadows and Sunshine' will appeal to teens and adults alike." -Seleca Walker, Language and Communications Lecturer at Mico University College, Jamaica. "The childlike maturity O'Sullivan-Roque brings to her stories is enhanced by the refreshing way in which she uses imagery." - Joan F. Joyner, retired Judge. "These brilliantly written stories of innocence and intrigue will capture your imagination." -Mark Schack, Executive Vice President of Oldcastle Inc., former President and CEO of Oldcastle Precast Inc.
