Author Roger H. Pantonabout this book: Female abuse is topical. However, it is not new. This book deals with the abuse of a 13 year-old girl in rural pre-independent Jamaica. It gives a flavour of life in the districts around the foreign-owned plantation and the inter-action between the plantation owners and those who work for them. It also sheds light on the fact that the abundance of Scottish names that exist in Jamaica is due in part, to the Scottish-owned plantations.

So why is a man writing about female abuse? Well, a lady who read my book "Mr Alexander," thinking it to be a true story, wanted me to write her true story of physical and psychological abuse which she suffered at the hands of her mother from age 6 to 15, in Kingston. The idea was later shelved. I could not however, 'delete' the idea from my brain. I therefore decided to write this fiction, but from the angle of sexual and physical abuse, in a rural setting, and from age 13. Nothing in Daisy McIntosh mirrors the incidents discussed with the lady. Her story can still be written.
