Description

This is an incredible dramatic 'real-reality' fictional story about a single mother and her animalistic raging passion with a few quid pro quos as she grippingly strives for survival for herself and her eight children.

No Hannibal Lecter here as might have been inferred by it's title (the author's real name given at birth is LAMB as in Luke Alexander Morgan Brown and hence, The Non-silence of the 'LAMB').

Review by CN Weekly News;

Dr. Luke A. M. Brown (the Lamb) has succeeded in writing a very interesting and entertaining book, focusing on a mother's relentless love in a community adjacent to Jamaica's second city, Montego Bay.
The story's about the pretty, shapely, country girl, Essie, who escaped life with an abusive family to live in Montego Bay. There, as a result of several failed romantic relationships, the young girl bears eight children for multiple men but matures to a strong, caring mother.
Essie meanders through her relationships with hope then despair, as again and again she is abandoned after bearing a child. But Essie presses on excelling as a chef, acquiring a house, and skillfully juggling scarce funds to cloth, feed and school her children.
As adults, the children succeed in making much of their lives, building on the foundation of their mother's love. Her eldest child and daughter, Gina, manages to get to the U.S., via the Bahamas, becomes a U.S. citizens and helped most of her siblings and her mother to migrate. One of her children, Leonard, whose life seems remarkably familiar to the author, becomes a Doctor of Pharmacy, the core of Essie's pride.
Essie grows old, sick and dies in the U.S., and her body is returned to Jamaica for burial where Leonard offers a moving eulogy. But the remarkable funeral is ruined when one of Essie's sons who despised her because she left him with his father, who Essie eventually marries, in the Jamaican countryside, sparked a major disturbance at the graveside over the reading of the will.
The author gives an in-depth account of the Jamaican culture and folklore.
