Moon Over Port Royal - A must-read for every Jamaican or friend of Jamaica!
by Horace Alexander
(Loma Linda, California, USA)
Moon Over Port Royal Book
Moon Over Port Royal is an epic portrayal of the illustrious people of the pirate capital, the Maroon freedom fighters of the hills, and the massive 1692 earthquake that sank "the wickedest city on earth" below the waves of the Caribbean Sea.
It is a novel which includes Nanny as a little girl and as a young woman along with Cudjoe and his brothers, and the system of slavery as shown on the Stokes Hall Estate in St Thomas parish.
Although a historical novel, it speaks to current issues such as the ecology, class and race, theology, and the causes of natural disasters.
