What’s it all about?

This evocative memoir tells the story of the relationship between
a young VSO from England and the man she married – 
Wordsworth McAndrew, Guyana’s celebrated folklorist,
 broadcaster, journalist and poet.

It includes extracts from the letters she wrote home to her parents,
as well as from Mac’s letters to her whenever they were apart.

The linking narrative expands on her memories of the lifestyle,
 the landscape, and the wider cultural & political scene
in a newly independent nation at the time.

It also exposes the mismatch between the resolutely optimistic
accounts of their life together that she gave her parents –
in an attempt to relieve their anxieties and overcome
their prejudice – and the reality.

This is now accessible on Amazon

In order to cut the online sale price of the book, especially
for overseas delivery, I sacrificed the few photos in colour,
though the black and white ones remain.

That’s why I’ve put the colour photos on a special page here,
so that you can still see them if you buy the book from Amazon

 On the other hand, I still have plenty of the original copies for sale,
with several colour illustrations, at £9.99 each
To buy one of these, simply email me at the address below:
rosie.mcandrew@beamingmail.com
and I will gladly post you a copy.
Postage rates within the UK or Overseas on application.
