About the Book

This modern romance explores the tumultuous love story of Jason and Alice; two star-crossed lovers from different worlds. Jason is a computing professional of Caribbean heritage, born and raised in London. Jason is struggling to come to terms with his unwitting preference for White women; along with the societal and cultural implications in a world increasingly divided by race. Jason stumbles across Alice; a good-natured, but slightly naive nurse, who has moved to the city from the countryside. The pair begin their journey amid a backdrop of growing racial tension in the city; tension triggered by an act of police brutality that is shrouded in governmental conspiracy. As the love-struck couple spend more time together, the complexities of interracial dating present challenging hurdles to overcome. Jason is called to demonstrate his commitment to his people by a Pro Black activist group, as revelations of Alice’s supposed infidelity and subterfuge come to light. Alice is compelled to interrogate what it truly means to be in an interracial relationship in the 21st century; a time where colour-blindness is no longer a strategy. In addition to their individual journeys of reflection, examination and discovery; they have to manage pressure from: friends, family and wider society, as they determine if what they have is worth fighting for - will they make it?
