In his second novel, Paul Foreman again deals with the theme of revenge and again we are treated to the mosaic that is Jamaica. The characters span the social classes from dirt poor Delbert, who lives rough near Negril to the owner of a large estate on the north coast. We are treated to an interesting glimpse into the lives of the Rastafarians and their gentle culture.

The author makes more extensive use of Jamaican patois in this novel and has provided a glossary but I found I rarely had to refer to it. As with his first book, Paul Foreman has given us a great tale rich with authentic detail of life in Jamaica.

Paul Foreman's book - Delbert and the Ginnal Woman - centers on friendship and loyalty while deftly weaving a battle between street-smarts and determination versus education and wealth shown by the characters in the book's title. With his use of the Jamaican patois and humor, the author entertains his readers as he takes them on a journey of one-upmanship
