She didn't want to work the tourist streets. She didn't want to shack up with a man who beat and abused her. Not Rosalind. She wanted Mr. Right. And at the first tiny glimpse of opportunity, she jumped at her chance--Glenn Webber, an American photographer approaching middle age. With dogged determination she clung to her hopes and despite harrowing obstacles, struggled to make her dreams come true. This is Roz's story, a tale that will touch a chord of reality to every country girl in Jamaica. It will also take the reader on an unforgettable tour of the most fascinating ilsland in the Caribbean.

Book Description Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 380 pages. What does a country girl of the islands do Have a baby at age thirteen Work the streets Maybe both Roz had other ideas. Dirt poor, hungry, bright-eyed and determined, she clings to her one distant hope--Glenn Webber, an aging, uncertain American photographer. He is Humbert Humbert with a conscience, forced comically to confront one moral dilemma after another in an effort to understand a culture starkly different from his own. Roz takes him, and we the readers, on a hilarious, erotic, heart-rending romp that includes a skillful seduction, a bloody jungle killing, a Kingston beauty pageant and a grim kidnapping. On our journey we see a side of Jamaica rarely seen by tourists. ROZ is a Caribbean fusion of Nabakovs Lolita, Twains Huck Finn, and Shaws Liza Doolittle. An epic love story . . . a helluva book. Jamaicas Daily GleanerThis novel is a combined version of Millers earlier two works, Jamaica Girl and Jamaica Woman. He invites you to visit his website: www. JonMichaelMiller. com . This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781461102977
