What Goes Round is another gold star for Tindal Street Press. Maeve Clarke combines love, kinships and suspense and she writes it beautifully. I could not put this book down!
What Goes Round is not another book written by a black writer for the black community. It's a book that illustrates how the past can and will catch up with you. No matter how far and how long you run for.
This is a book for anyone who has mistaken lust for love. Because if you thought that the past is long gone ... What Goes Round will make you want to check every nook and cranny in your relationship. When do you know when love is not lust?
When you have been ripped out of the world you created to be brought back to your demons .... what would you do? Would you bury your head in the sand or prepare to fight for your life? What Goes Round sets this dilemma among the beautiful background of Jamaica and its people. Infinite.
I have to admit that the patois was a little difficult to hear in my head as I read along but once I got used to it, it was not a problem.
The best parts of the book for me were the character of Aunt B and the cliff hanger at the end.
Will Maeve continue where she left off?
I hope so.
For those of you who have not had a taste of Maeve Clarke's writing before, I urge you to read her short story, which is the opener in "Whispers in the Dark" a collection of short stories by Black and Asian writers from Birmingham.
