From School Library Journal:

An unsuccessful story of one of the first black families to emigrate from Jamaica to Britain in the late 1950s. Rowlands has defused an explosive setting with flat characters, dull dialogue, and overly long narrative passages. In addition, the book is encumbered with unexplained Briticisms and historical references. In a very slow beginning, Nelson Vincent and his family arrive in London and search for housing. He and his brother enter school, where they face instant, often vicious, prejudice. When his brother's rock band plays for a dance, a race riot ensues. Milk and Honey is full of convenient coincidences. Nelson's father is completely oblivious to his family's unhappiness in London, and Mrs. Waterman, whose garden Nelson tends, is alternately too kind and forgiving to be believed and too philosophical to be endured. The colorful life the Vincents left behind in Jamaica is never developed, providing no contrast to the grimy grayness of London. A strong moral tone dominates the entire book, and although Nelson does find happiness in the end, readers won't be sure he's any better off than if he'd stayed in Jamaica. American readers will be lost by the end of the first chapter, if they make it that far. --Joyce Adams Burner, formerly at Spring Hill Middle Sch . , KS
