A ravishingly beautiful modern-day illuminated manuscript created by a brilliant young Jamaican artist who weaves together in words and paintings the story of her mother's life and death. Both the story and the paintings are enriched by Anna's remarkable family heritage - Jewish and Christian, European, African, Chinese, Indian, Creole - and by her amazing drive to use her enormous artistic gifts to transform loss into a passionate celebration of life.
