Title: Swimming with fishes
Author :Rasheda Ashanti Malcolm
Swimming with fishes is an amazing love story. It takes us to in the foreground of Jamaica where the characters come alive. It seems that each one provides a different aspect of love, respect, strength and determination. Rasheda beautifully described life as it is on the off beaten tracks of Jamaica. However I believe this as can be seen throughout the Caribbean.
I recognised many of the characters. It seems like everywhere you go, there is a Mother Cynthy with all the wisdom in the world, a Nellie Potato who minds everyone’ business except her own, an old rum-head man who everyone thinks drinks more rum than water and not to mention friends that are honest, supportive and non-judgemental. But most of all a mother with her faith and belief being the basis of everything.
