Against the colourful backdrop of rich, Trinidadian culture, religion and politics, the Redman family journeys through life in the fictional settings of Bonaire and San Pedro.

In a series of anecdotes, each presented in a particular year, a life-experience of each character in the family is highlighted, and the reader can expect to be entertained by riveting scenes involving adventure, humour, conflict, emotion, and a touch of romance that would keep anyone locked on to the pages of the book.

Directly or indirectly, the post-colonial effects of British colonialism, as well as North American television. would make an impact on a few events and characters.

Despite the fact that Mr. Redman places a lot of value on the education of his children and leaves their home village to go to the town, the values of love, respect and loyalty for their family roots are also underscored.

Over the years the children grow up and take their rightful places in the adult world; and Lucinda, the precocious and outspoken twin, eventually finds fulfilment in her career as well as within the folds of her own family at Grandes Villas. It is she, among her siblings, along with her husband, who will epitomise the definition of family.
