Secrets of the Spirit Tree – A Jamaican Adventure
Check out this new book by T.L. Williams, Secrets of the Spirit Tree.
This is a wonderful new Jamaican story for adults and children alike!
Here’s what one review says about it, “Great story, wonderful reading. Although it is a children’s book I found myself fascinated by the story, the characters and the setting. Needless to say my 9-year old daughter and 7-year old son had some ‘discussions’ over whom was to read the book on the Ipad next”.

About the book:
Two Jamaican children from Bluefields discover that the Silk Cotton or “Duppy Tree” has magical powers. In a series of mysterious events they meet a Spanish boy from the 16th Century and his Taino Indian friend. Together the four explore a lost civilization, stand together against bloodthirsty conquistadors and learn that friendship transcends time, space and culture.
A funny, thoughtful and original story!
