Secrets We Kept: Three Women of Trinidad by Krystal A. Sital
Growing up in the lush hills of southern Trinidad, Krystal Sital idolized her grandfather, a wealthy Hindu landowner. Yet, once he lapses into a coma and women start coming forward vocalizing how he terrorized them, a light is shed on the many tribulations Krystal's foremothers had to endure in order to survive.
Not only is Secrets We Kept an enthralling memoir through every page, but it brilliantly reveals the gender inequality that too commonly takes place throughout the Caribbean and around the world.
