Because You Were There

Bringing the Windrush story to life

"This amazing book is a lovely and delightful read that is thought provoking at the same time, with a pacy, touching, and gripping story line that engrosses the reader."

" ...a wonderfully enjoyable read, a novel driven by a finely paced plot and peopled by engaging characters.

"It is no mean feat for a novelist to gently weave the iniquities of ethnocentricity into an entertaining narrative."

" I could see it as a reference text in secondary schools, bringing the Windrush story to life in narrative form."

"A Compelling read."
