Storyteller Wilson weaves a complexly wonderful tale of a three-generation family comprising characters a-plenty spanning the range of human life and living, but at the same time unified by the elders' sense of responsibility for the welfare of the young, in other words, for their sense of place and purpose, their education, their exposure to and adoption of a sensibility based on care and compassion. Cynthia Wilson was born in St. Philip, Barbados in 1934. She worked as a high school English teacher in Jamaica and Morocco, before returning home in 1969. For nearly thirty years Cynthia has been representing her country and the cultural arts on national, regional and international boards, committees and in the foras of dance, theatre and tourism. Writing poetry and stories has been a consistent but mostly private part of her life and professional career. Cynthia's awards and honours include the Barbados Service Star, the Bussa Award, the University of the West Indies Humanities Scholar and Distinguished Graduate awards, and the Earl Warner Trust Lifetime Achievement Award.
