The Angel's Share by Garfield Ellis'

What do you do when you're working on an important project at work and your father asks you to go with him on a quest to find his long-lost love? Of course, you say no, but when he goes off on his own, you take some vacation time to try and talk him into returning home.

Everton has begun a journey he never could have imagined. It's a journey through parts of Jamaica, but even more so, this journey of learning about his father.

I've never been to Jamaica, but Ellis managed to give me a sense of being there,  in a familiar place. Also, even though I'm not  black, Jamaican, or male, I was also able to identify with both Everton and his dad. This is because Ellis has written a very human story. There is no good guy or bad guy, no superheroes or evil nemesis. There are very real people, basically decent, with both good and bad traits. I don't think either man knew the real journey he is on, but I very much enjoyed going with them.

I see a world where all people accept each other as friends and neighbors, and celebrate each person's uniqueness as a vital part of everyone's life, like threads in a tapestry. -F. Shafer Junaid
