Synopsis

Joint Winner of the 1982 Fawcett Society Book Prize

Set in Belize, Beka Lamb is the record of a few months in the life of Beka and her family. The story of Beka's victory over her habit of lying, which she conquers after deceiving her father about a disgrace at school, is told in flashback. Her recollections begin when she wins an essay price at her convent school, and stand in lieu of a wake for her friend Toycie. The politics of the small colony, the influence of the matriarchal society and the dominating presence of the Catholic Church are woven into the fabric of the story to provide a compelling portrait of ordinary

life in Belize.

' ... a loving evocation of Belizean life and landscape'

Third World Quarterly
