Wiki

A warm story of how one man s transformation can move a people. Both well-crafted and revealing, this is an inspiring tale of humanity for readers of all ages. --Kirkus Reviews

McLean composes his poetic tale in full consciousness of the power of words. --Forward Magazine

Set in a small Jamaican farming village, Broken Gourds by Beresford McLean is the deftly written and engaging story of a lowly healer, who seeks to empower the suffering yet who learns the hard way that with power comes immense temptation and the seven deadly sins. The eternal struggle of human nature and man at war with himself is exquisitely captured in this exotic yet empathetic tale. --Small Press Review
