Jade Jordan’s grandmother, Kathleen, left Ireland for England in the late 1950s to train as a nurse. While there, she fell in love and married a Jamaican man. They had two sons and a daughter, Dominique, and settled in London’s diverse Walthamstow. But when Kathleen decided to return home to Dublin, she discovered that the colour of her children’s skin set them apart – and that their new lives would be very different to the ones they had known. Here, in this honest, warm-hearted and often humorous multi-generational memoir, Kathleen, Dominique and her daughter Jade each tell their story.
