Claire Wynter returns to the U.S. from a successful search for her missing grandmother in Jamaica, where Karl Grayson from the island’s well-to-do class, descendants of English settlers, had taken an interest in her while helping her in the search. Claire brings back with her the memory of their nascent romance and her promise to return to Karl soon. But she also brings back the words from Karl’s mother who expressed the fear that her grandchildren would be dark. Claire is deeply hurt by the racial slur and decides to give Karl Grayson and his family a wide berth. Setting aside her promise to return to him soon, she resumes her satisfying life as communications director at a university and immerses herself in her work. But when her close friend develops what seems to be a promising relationship, Claire has second thoughts and is stirred to revive her near-romance with Karl. She makes a call to the island, connects with him, and life for her takes a dramatic turn. Island Hearts is a piece of Christian fiction that exposes racial bias and pride of place, and reveals the virtues of faith and devotion.

Judith Nembhard, a life-long educator, has written for professional journals and magazines and has published two novels, Myra’s Calling and Breaking Away, and a memoir, Mr. Michael: Journeying with My Special Son.

Born in Jamaica, she cherishes the island’s enchantment, which has an influence on her writing. She lives in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
