This Too Will Pass
by Sonia Williams
"Sonia Williams with This too Will Pass has managed to take us totally into the emerging consciousness of a female child, into the understanding of the life of an Afro-Barbadian lower income family. We appreciate not just the process of socialisation into the culture, but also the absorption into the deeper spirituality of the group. Sonia has given us another classical portrait of a Caribbean grandmother as she stretches her cloak of protection over grandchildren, brothers, sisters-in-law, children. But this is not the usual superhuman grandmother, this one is human - she makes mistakes. This work is magical-realism; we don't want this to pass, we want more from the pen of Sonia Williams."
