This is the story of Saucy and her Mama.Follow the adventurous journey of a young Jamaican girl as she navigates the perilous streets of Brooklyn, New York in the decade of the seventies.

 Carmen, affectionately called Saucy, was born to Beatrice, a child herself, in a small village in Jamaica's hinterland. Beatrice, now called Mama by all, survives the taunts and jeers of family and friends, and migrates to the United States to find a better way for herself and her fatherless child who she has left in the care of her mother. The story traces the misadventures of Mama and Saucy, as they embark on their journey seeking the American Dream. It allows the reader to experience the travails of a mother trying to make something of herself and her daughter, while sometimes using quite unsavory methods. The reader is allowed to experience Brooklyn, New York, in the decade of the seventies into the early eighties, the characters and their prejudices, their island habits, their hopes and their fears. Saucy is the one bright spot in the otherwise murky world of drugs, obeah, and sexual aberrations. As we follow her story, we experience the unpleasantness of parental over-protection, the joys of young love, the pain of deception and yet we are able to rejoice in the beauty of self worth, and the fact that good always wins over all else. This is the story of the misadventures of Saucy and her Mama. Enjoy.
