For Karlyna Bancroft, this fiesty, free spirited thirty-one year old Island girl, returning home to assist in her failing family business was definitely not on her agenda. At the indirect request of her ailing father to come home and after several years living in the United States and barely surviving financially, Karlyna Bancroft goes home to Jamaica. She finds that her family's rum and wine distillery will soon be taken over by a sinister sugar producer, a family acquaintance, who had recently expanded in the rum industry and is engaged to be married to Karlyna's half sister. Inadequacies and childhood insecurities resurface within Karlyna and the age-old class and color lines are rearing its ugly head in modern day Jamaica, which Karlyna would have to overcome for her to rescue her family business. To complicate this situation even more, Karlyna faces her childhood tormentor, Jude Spencer, an enigmatic unrelenting man, who seems to be doing everything to get her to notice him, including dating Karlyna's best friend. Armed with a few supporters, Karlyna's attempt at bringing the family business back on its feet is short-lived and she realizes that she may need Jude Spencer's help if she should ever succeed

Book Description
Oracle of the Sun Gods is a story that follows several young African-American college students as they embark on their summer school exchange program to Sudan. They are forced to take a look at life, love, the unquenchable thirst of youthful ambitions, and examine how the most simple and innocuous decisions can change one's life forever. The trip to the Motherland was to educate them on the subject of Natural History and to gain an invaluable experience working on a very significant archeological site. But while there, each young woman realizes her dreams, explores her passions, tastes the sweet grapes of glory and discovers hidden talents when faced with adversity. For Raine Marsh in particular, she discovers the awful reality of how the unexpected twist of fate can deposit her in a predicament which she, in her wildest dream, would ever have imagined. Raine's path is crossed by a mysterious and sinister Sheik, whose intentions are to bend Raine to his will and to deceive his nephew out of his inheritance. Raine finds herself as a temporary guardian to the sheik's nine-year-old nephew, and soon discovers that her involvement with the boy will thrust her in the midst of a war between two relentless, rivaling tribes. proves to be highly entertaining.
