PM Gonsalves commends Vincentian author on book launch


Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves has commended Vincentian diplomat Doris Charles, who, last Saturday, January 6, released her first novel.

Gonsalves said that he attended the novel’s launch at the St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) High Commission in London and he was very impressed.{{more}}

The book, ‘The day I found him,’ was published by BIS Publications, which said the book is: “A beautiful and powerful read, the depth, simplicity and redemptive tone throughout the book makes you feel that there is always power in self, and no experience is wasted. All is possible, through the higher being.”

The novel was written since 2008, previous to Charles’ appointment to office and is about Dannii, who grew up in the Caribbean.

The novel, although inspired by events and characters from the mid-sixties, is purely a work of fiction. It is about naivety and simplicity of life on Mongoose Hill for Dannii, a girl who became dissatisfied with her life.
