Synopsis: This book, subtitled "Recollection of a West Indian Childhood," was written by an 82-year old woman of her years as a child and adult on the island of Antigua in the British West Indies between 1920 and 1945. Taken there from Britain as an infant when her father became a partner in a firm that owned sugar estates and other commercial enterprises on the island, she recalls a person and famility life but also deals with the history of the area, the government, and the problems of an island with too large a population, the aftermath of long gone slavery.
About the Author: Margaret Lockett is an English woman who met her husband on Antigua while he was serving in the U.S. Air Force during World War II. She now lives in Seattle.
