About the book: An award-winning novel by British writer Andrea Levy. Hortense arrives in London from Jamaica in 1948 with her life in her suitcase, her heart broken, her resolve intact. Her husband returns from the war expecting to be received as a hero, but finds his status as a black man in Britain to be second class. Their white landlady, Queenie, befriends them until her husband returns from combat with issues of his own to resolve.
