JUMPING SHIP
An Introductory Novella (0.5)

~ When the pursuit of love trumps obligations ~

On the 3rd of June 1975 in New York, Edward and Pearl Riley receive the ultimate give of love – a newborn baby, wrapped in a blanket and stuffed in a burlap bag. The child’s name, Sakkara, is written out on a torn sheet of paper, and immediately fills every void the married couple has ever had.

Pregnant seamstress Petrina Dugal becomes a runaway at the age of twenty-six. She flees the claws of a brutish husband, despite her adoration for a well-loved South American country known as Guyana. At the heart of the rebellion resides an enigmatic lover named Michael Chen. The journey to escape their choices lead the couple through the Caribbean’s treasure trove of islands:
Trinidad & Tobago
Grenada
Barbados
St. Lucia
Martinique
Antigua

The journey of the young couple from Guyana to New York is chronicled in very specific clues, left with baby Sakkara. But as she comes of age and begins learning the truth of her abandonment, the Caribbean calls out to this love child. Sakkara is set to unravel the mystery of her true heritage, and hopefully reunite with her long-lost parents.
