Om When Passion Wins
This book basically highlights the need for understanding and acceptance of the arts as viable career options for young people. It promotes the need for a discussion on choosing careers, thus avoiding possible conflicts between parents and child. In this story, Angelique, a girl of eleven years, grows up in a Caribbean island with her parents, younger brother, and older sister. She realizes at this early age that she has a great love for music, a love that develops into a passion, a passion that, as she grows older, she wants to develop into a career. This, however, is not a career path envisaged by her parents for their daughter. In fact, her father wants her to be a doctor. In their town, music is considered to be nothing more than a hobby. How Angelique goes about getting support and acceptance for her chosen profession makes interesting reading. Varying emotions are evoked as the reader follows Angie from her very first encounter in chapter 1 right through to the end. She goes from taking her eleven-plus examination to experiences in secondary school, maturing into a determined young lady ready to take on whatever lies ahead.
