The premise of a favored child isn t a new one but this story is uniue and set in Trinidad Twin boys are born Peter and Paul Peter is the family s golden child the brilliant one with a bright future All of the family s hopes and dreams for the future are pinned on him But Paul is different and difficult and branded retarded although he is not from oxygen deprivation during a difficult birth It s 1980 s Trinidad and lawlessness prevails The family is of modest means and every day is a struggle to survive Dangers lurk everywhereOne of the strengths of the story is the strong sense of time and place I admit I knew little of Trinidad until I read this book The hopelessness and struggles of the family are beautifully conveyed Every culture and family has certain belief systems and while they may be difficult for us to understand I felt empathy for this family This a difficult book to talk about without spoilers but there is a pivotal moment in the book that is difficult to fathom and which broke my heart The painful choices of a family living in poverty and under constant threat is easy to judge if we have not walked in their shoes It s not a book that is enjoyed in the traditional sense but it is one that grew on me and one I pondered after finishing Many thanks to the publisher for a free copy of the book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

A beautiful and unsettling tale alive with cultureClaire Adam s debut is a story that will transport you to 1980s Trinidad with its descriptive writing I found the tropical setting of Trinidad to be uniue and fascinating The juxtaposition of the beauty and corruption was simultaneously disconcerting and alluring A Book that I believe will stay with me for a long time a book that asks many uestions and begs to be discussed I was so grateful that I had both my mom and my good friend Jennifer to talk about this book with after I finished There are some heartbreaking decisions made in this book but I believe the difference in culture and time had something to do with some tough choices I strongly encourage you to fine one of your best reading buddies and read this mesmerizing book1980s Trinidad a family of modest means just trying to survive Clyde the father works long hours at a petroleum company doing his absolute best to support his family Joy the mother stays home and takes care of her family twin boys Peter and Paul Peter is the golden child not just smart but a genius Paul was born with the cord around his neck depriving him of oxygen and ultimately leading to a learning disability Joy did what she could to make sure the boys were treated eually something that Clyde struggled with Cultural differences and an ill euipped school system lead to Paul being treated poorly something that was hard to read The family is ultimately face with a heart wrenching decision with no good answers The other people surrounding the family as well as Trinidad itself really lend a lot of conflict to this story The extended family does not always have the best of intentions and they are connected to some pretty shady people The corruption and crime of Trinidad also is a huge factor in this storyI was completely swept away by this compelling story The characters were so well drawn and colorful The storyline was very thought provoking and evoked many emotions I thoroughly enjoyed every minute I spend with this family on this island even though at times it was extremely uncomfortable and distressful A powerful story I won t soon forget I absolutely recommend this was one stunning audiobook that absolutely further immersed me in the story Obi Abili brought so much island flavor to the narration with his melodic island accent Seriously I could listen to him talk all day long Song Running Through My Head One love one heartLet s get together and feel all rightAs it was in the beginningSo shall it be in the endLet s get together and feel all rightLet them all pass all their dirty remarks one loveThere is one uestion I d really like to ask one heartIs there a place for the hopeless sinnerWho has hurt all mankind just to save his ownBelieve meOne love one heartLet s get together and feel all rightAs it was in the beginningSo shall it be in the endOne love one heartLet s get together and feel all rightLet s gethttpsmyoutubecomwatchvvdB 8eL A huge thank you too SJP for Hogarth for my copy of this book Instagram Twitter Blog

Golden Child summary ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF read & download ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Claire Adam A deeply affecting debut novel set in Trinidad following the lives of a family as they navigate impossible choices about scarcity loyalty and loveRural Trinidad a brick house on stilts surrounded by bush; a family uietly surviving just trying to live a decent life Clyde the father works long exhausting shifts at the petroleum plant in southern Trinidad; Joy his wife looks after. Ok I m not proud I will admit to reuesting this book on netgalley because of the celebrity tie in This Is the second book chosen by Sarah Jessica Parker under her new job as a publisher for Hogarth and I was just flat out curious to see what I thought of her book picking skills The story takes place in 1980s Trinidad Adam gets the mood exactly right the sense of lawlessness the lack of societal safeguards Guard dogs patrol everyone s yards A teenage boy walks off after school and doesn t return His father alternates between being worried and furious Anyone who has raised teenagers understands his emotions exactly The book then takes us back in time Paul is one of two twins While being born the cord wrapped around his neck depriving him of oxygen and leading to him having learning disabilities His brother Peter on the other hand is a genius We learn all about the struggles the family endures trying to give each son eual opportunities despite their different abilities It s not until the point that Clyde is faced with his big decision And it s so obvious what is going to transpire that there was no sense of suspense The last third of the book is heartbreaking but predictable So great sense of place but beyond that I was less than impressed My thanks to netgalley and SJP for an advance copy of this book
