Tony and Moda see Marse Brooks and Willie Ben. Both are famous Montserrat politicians, but they are long dead. This confirms that they are also dead or that they have traveled back in time. Moda and her mom had moved from Montserrat to Canada after the volcanic eruption that devastated the region. Tony and Moda are friends and successful business partners involved in the fashion industry. Lately, Moda has had strange dreams about masquerades that scare her, considering the information about her family's ability to communicate with ancestors. To get inspiration for their next fashion project, they travel to Montserrat, and that's when strange things start happening. To find out how things unfold, get a copy of Moda and The Masquerades: The Rhythm Plays On by Jacqueline Greer Graham.
The celebration of culture, diversity, and tolerance stood out in Moda and The Masquerades by Jacqueline Greer Graham. The expertly woven plot line flows seamlessly, leaving no room for confusion, and I loved the unique approach Jacqueline used. Going back in time is one aspect I loved the most. It triggered my curiosity to learn more about the history of slavery in the Caribbean. The plot twists and turns also make it hard to predict what will happen, hence making one look forward to subsequent chapters. The characters are well-developed, and the vivid descriptions of events and places make it an adventure without having to leave my couch. The steady narration also added to the overall appeal of the book. I look forward to reading something else by this talented author.
