'An outstanding debut' Cherie Jones, author of How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps her House

'Vivid and authentic' Leone Ross, author of This One Sky Day

'Cacophonic, alive, heartbreaking' Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Mercies

At eighteen years old, Dinah gave away her baby son to the rich couple she worked for before they left Jamaica. They never returned. She never forgot him.

Eighteen years later, a young man comes from the US to Kingston. From the moment she sees him, Dinah never doubts - this is her son. What happens next will make everyone question what they know and where they belong.

A powerful story of belonging, identity and inheritance, What a Mother's Love Don't Teach You brings together a blazing chorus of voices to evoke Jamaica's ghetto, dance halls, criminal underworld and corrupt politics, at the beating heart of which is a mother's unshakeable love for her son.
