The Tide Between Us: The Irish-Jamaican Story Inspired by the real story of 2,000 Irish children deported to Jamaica and the statistics that 25% of Jamaican citizens claim Irish ancestry, The Tide Between Us is a powerful novel documenting true historical events and the resilience of the human spirit. Author Olive Collins will shed light into her research and the process of developing the narrative of Art O'Neill, a 10-year-old Irish boy and indentured servant on the sugar plantations of Jamaica, linking the past and the future in this illuminating trilogy.
Collins is an award-winning and bestselling historical fiction writer. The Tide Between Us is her critically acclaimed second novel. Collins grew up in Tipperary, Ireland. She has travelled extensively and enjoys exploring other cultures and countries. Her inspiration is the ordinary everyday people who feed her snippets of their lives. Collins is currently working on her fourth novel, which is set in the notorious Five Points district of New York.
