World-renowned fine artist, Synthia SAINT JAMES, pens her first novelette, a coming-of-age tale about a special little girl named HYACINTH. The era is the 1950s, when many families of color migrated to the beauty and promise of California. We learn about Hyacinth’s West Indian ancestry through the experiences of her mother and her grandparents, who came to America from Haiti in the 1930s. From their delicious island cooking to their traditional family values, they live as a close unit that protects and cherishes each other. Young Hyacinth discovers early on that her gift and her purpose coincide when she paints – and this will forever be her destiny.
