About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Sybil is a twelve-year old Afro-Jamaican girl, committed to her Christian faith, but victimized by forces beyond her control. Ground into the dust of violent exploitation, she refuses to succumb to circumstances. By profound spiritual gifts and a strength of character that defies all attempts to crush her, she prevails and triumphs to breathe vital life into her traumatized and bewildered family; all the while impressing everyone she encounters, by her fidelity, sense of fair play and trustworthiness. Sybil embodies the coined motto of the author: "To be an authentic Jamaican takes a little longer"

About the Author
Hector J. Grant, Sr. is a Jamaican by birth who is now an American citizen. He is a retired Methodist clergyman who writes to express his hopes for a possible productive future for his homeland. He retains a passionate love for the fortunes and destiny of the land of his birth. This student of the human condition, wields his writing craft to enrapture the mind of the reader, much like an artist wields a brush. The pages of his books exudes the regnant spirituality that dominates the very breathing of indigenous Jamaicans. Each page becomes a blank canvas on which he creates images that bring to life the travails and triumphs that frame the hopes and dreams of his people. He wields an imagination that rises to the task and effectively accomplishes his intended purpose. Sybil is his second publication in a unique genre that interweaves the sacred and secular Jamaican lifestyle that is ubiquitous to most Jamaicans, though rarely presented as such in literature. The third of this series will be one in which he recalls Sammy, the hero of the first novel, to press further into the longed for future of his native land. That novel will complete a trilogy dedicated to his beloved Jamaica.
