Product description


A Journey of Promise is a fictitious story about a young woman called Gillian Honey. Having outgrown her rural life experiences in Promise, she seeks development elsewhere. Her journey, focused around a nursing career, takes her from the rural suburbs of Guyana to urban city life in Georgetown, and thereon to London. The story shows the rich and diverse community of Promise and a young woman up against life's pitfalls, challenges and highs. Gillian's tour begins and ends in Guyana against the background of the changing 1970s era, depicting and comparing new ideologies with old ones, showing how they affect her life.
