Synopsis

'Vivid and authentic' LEONE ROSS, author of This One Sky Day



'Cacophonic, alive and heartbreaking' KIRAN MILLWOOD HARGRAVE, author of The Mercies



As featured on BBC's Cultural Frontline podcast



At eighteen years old, Dinah gave away her baby son to the rich couple she worked for before they left Jamaica. They never returned. She never forgot him.



Eighteen years later, a young man comes from the US to Kingston. From the moment she sees him, Dinah never doubts - this is her son.



What happens next will make everyone question what they know and where they belong.



A powerful story of belonging, identity and inheritance, What a Mother's Love Don't Teach You brings together a blazing chorus of voices to evoke Jamaica's ghetto, dance halls, criminal underworld and corrupt politics, at the beating heart of which is a mother's unshakeable love for her son.



'Delicate but gut-wrenching' JOSIE D'ARBY, broadcaster



'Irresistible' CURDELLA FORBES, author of A Tall History of Sugar



'Arresting' LISA ALLEN-AGOSTINI, author of The Bread the Devil Knead



'Wonderful' JACOB ROSS, author of The Bone Readers



'Exciting' YEWANDE OMOTOSO, author of An Unusual Grief



'Thrilling' CELESTE MOHAMMED, author of Pleasantview
