Facing the Sun

Janice Lynn Mather

Set in the Caribbean, Facing the Sun revolves around four friends—Eve, Faith, KeeKee and Nia—who are facing unexpected changes in their lives: Eve’s father is diagnosed with cancer and she’s fraught with worry; Faith comes from a broken home and can’t get the man she loves; KeeKee is estranged from her father and suffers a betrayal; and Nia wants to escape her overprotective mother. To make matters worse, a hotel developer purchases their community’s beloved beach. Will this be a make or break summer for the four friends? An exciting new work from Learning to Breathe author and Governor General’s Literary Award finalist, Janice Lynn Mather.
