"In Portrait of an Island, Jenny Palmer has presented to the world the charm and mystique of St Lucia... Whether it's the historical buildings and sites, the food, flowers, children at play, the villages in the distance, women selling, or the sulphur springs, it is an excellent collection by someone who seems to have more than a personal interest in the Caribbean." --Paul H. Williams, The Sunday Gleaner
"There are some stunning photos. One, of Anse la Raye, shows a young boy running past an old shop at a corner. The boy is a blur of speed, the shop is a decrepit, weathered wooden structure. It is a photograph that speaks of change, modernity, history, poverty, commerce, youth, all with a single image." --Lisa Allen-Agostini, Caribbean Beat
