  • (1888PressRelease) February 13, 2016 - "Long Time Walk on Water" by Joan Barbara Simon, About the Book: Centuries on from the discovery of her beloved island in the sun, Emily Thompson, Rose to her friends, leaves for the motherland, England, in search of a better life. One day her children will be able to join her and choose from a dazzling array of possibilities. Till then, it's hard work for the young woman in this rich man's country; not only must Rose scrape the money together for a new life, but she must also come to terms with this unknown phenomenon... James Dunbar. Jack is what he answers to.

    Even from his poky council flat on the seventh floor, he can see all too clearly that the streets of London are most definitely not paved with gold. Picking his way through the mucky incidents of life, he consoles himself that things will get better; his kids won't turn into ruffians and go smashing up other people's property. One day, they'll all live in a house with a garden. No graffiti anywhere in sight. They happen to meet at a bus-stop, Emily and Jack.

    Encounters which do seem to contain a glint of that something better they are both looking for, if only they had the courage to reach out and touch it. An account of the black immigrant experience jostling to find its place among the white working class. A tale of how the humble live whilst waiting for their dreams to come true. Peppered with humour and compassion, Long Time Walk on Water is, above all, an unforgettable love story.
