Having read this wonderful book, I conclude it is a most interesting experience to read concerning the richness of this Caribbean country's culture, both positive and negative aspects, and also a heartwarming interlude into a little girl's life, conclusions and relationship with people and animals. I recommend it.
I just finished reading Golden Soul and it was a joy. It opened up my mind and taught me so many lessons through the eyes of a young girl. The story is a heart-wrenching but very exciting at the same time. I would recommend this book for anyone who has passion for life.
