Ms. Jean Caines a single parent of St. Pauls Parish is Nevis’ newest author. She launched her first publication “Let’s look Back”¦A Diary About Nevis and Nevisians”, earlier this week at the Bath Hotel. The book chronicles life on the island through accounts of Nevisians both past and present.
Area Representative and personal friend Hon. Robelto Hector applauded Ms. Caines for her tenacity and hard work and said her achievement could serve as a resourceful piece of literature about Nevis.
“I am seeing what a helpful tool your book could be in our schools and more so to the wider community. It was very thoughtful of you to think of compiling such pertinent information,” he said.
Meantime, Ms. Caines said the thought to write the book came in late August 2005 after she tried to recall the names of her school teachers and couldn’t and phone calls to fellow students proved futile.
