Harriet's Daughter


There have been many great and enduring works of literature by Caribbean authors over the last century. The Caribbean Contemporary Classics collection celebrates these deep and vibrant stories, overflowing with life and acute observations about society.

'Adults! You know I think there should be some kind of exam before people can become adults and have power over other people.'

Margaret, AKA Harriet, is feisty, smart, a great friend, and always in trouble with her parents. She compiles a list: 'Things I would most like to see changed in my life' (beginning with 'I want a different father') and sets about achieving her objectives. In particular, she wants to model herself on Harriet Tubman, and help her friend Zulma escape from Canada to return to her grandmother in Tobago. Things don't go exactly to plan, and Margaret and Zulma face a lot of challenges and problems along the way, but after a tumultuous year they find out that sometimes things work out in unexpected ways, and even that there is more than one way of changing your father.

This is a charming, humorous and perceptive tale of the friendship of two girls, but it throws into sharp relief the wider issues of culture and identity, history and experience, compassion and trust.

Suitable for readers aged 14 and above.
