It is 1937 in Jamaica. Raised by an oppressive father deep in the countryside, Linton McMann toils in a rum distillery. Meanwhile, in Kingston, Daisy Wellstead encounters misfortune, trapped in an unhappy marriage. Seeking a new life they immigrate to the United States where they meet in New York, fall in love and start a family. Ambition drives them to start a business, selling roots tonic, a drink that Linton learned to make in Jamaica. By 1986, the drink is a sensation. Money flows in, but something is missing. Happiness is as scarce as freshwater in the middle of the sea. Wrestling with their past while living in a land of plenty, Linton and Daisy discover that truth is the only avenue to happiness.

About the Author:

Lloyd was born in Oakland in 1961, a first-generation American child to Jamaican parents. As a child his trips to Jamaica in the 60's and 70's shaped who he became. Growing up in Hayward California he was steeped in the island tradition of reggae, Jamaican cuisine, and patois. After studying engineering, Lloyd became a staff photographer for the San Jose Mercury News. He left newspapers to work for Yahoo Financial News Network and returned to journalism after 9-11. In 2001 Lloyd reported from Iraq for Newsweek Magazine, and went on to cover the war in Afghanistan. Lloyd returned to San Francisco in 2006. He lives with his wife, his two sons, and two Amazon parrots. He frequently takes long walks around San Francisco and Golden Gate Park, looking for great Instagram photographs.
