Love Doesn't Die is three charming books in one - a primer on life in Jamaica through the eyes of a child growing up on a sun-kissed island paradise; a memoir of Brent-Harris’ father; and a small sampling of heartwarming poems by Brent-Harris, offering homespun wisdom and advice for maintaining a positive outlook in an unpredictable world. Love Doesn’t Die succeeds in each of its three missions; the primer is fascinating, the memoir is touching and inspirational, and the poetry is warm and whimsical. The memoir portion of the manuscript beckons like an invitation into Brent-Harris’ home for tea. A reader is immediately impressed by how much the author enjoys sharing her stories and how valuable we, her readers, are to her. The combined effect of the three elements is to take the reader out of place and time to halcyon days in tropical climes - like a week of summer vacation full of life lessons in a bright and breezy book that could be read easily in a lunch hour.
Love Doesn’t Die feels like a personal conversation and reads as if one should pause for a sip of tea between each life-affirming paragraph. Angela Brent-Harris is clearly on a mission to bring her remarkable father’s unique style of life, love, and education to a world sorely in need of good news. Her spirit and enthusiasm are infectious and will linger long after one has finished reading Love Doesn’t Die. An additional bonus: apart from being an eminently worthwhile piece of inspirational non-fiction, Love Doesn’t Die is impeccably formatted - it could easily serve as a template for anyone wishing to write a memoir or tribute to be handed down for future generations.
Love Doesn’t Die by Angela Brent-Harris is a gently inspirational, soothing portrait of a daughter’s love for her father and a father’s love for life and for his family - all in a tropical setting as carefree and restorative as an afternoon breeze.
