I'm excited to share it with you!
Where do you call home? It’s likely a number of places over time, but there’s probably something special about your first home. For Jacqueline Greer Graham, it was Harris, Montserrat, British West Indies, where her experiences were rich and defining; it is where she navigated both the pleasant and unpleasant situations that shaped her identity. Jacqueline immigrated to Canada and continued to be shaped by her experiences. She took for granted that she could go home anytime, but a sleeping giant had other plans. The Soufrière Hills volcano, which was dormant for almost 400 years, awoke on July 18, 1995, and changed Montserrat catastrophically. When the ashes cleared, Jacqueline’s journey home would prove to be challenging, albeit transformative.

"Almost Full Circle by Jacqueline Greer Graham simply blew me away! This smart, incisive, and highly visual tale has opened my eyes to the commonalities between African and Caribbean civilizations...

This book will appeal to anybody looking for a well-written, historically grounded memoir with a Caribbean and African theme. Words cannot fully express how I feel. You must experience it for yourself!" —Readers' Favorite, five-star review
