About Red Jacket
Available: February 28, 2015
TAP Book (Distributed by Dundurn)
“Growing up on the Caribbean island of St. Chris, Grace Carpenter wonders how it is that her extended family is black, while she is a redibo, with copper coloured skin, red hair, and grey eyes. Unkind people taunt her with names like “red jacket.” Years later, as an adult working for the WHO in West Africa, she meets Jimmy Atule, an unusual priest with an unnerving gift. With his help, Grace confronts the truth about her birth and deciphers the mystery of her true identity.”
