For many members of the Hall family, a giant naseberry tree near their home in Jamaica served as a dear friend and confidant. It was a place of comfort and discussion, where children learned to mimic adults in speech and lifestyle.
In Book Three Products from Under the Old Naseberry Tree, author Hortense M. Jenkins builds recollections of her family’s history, development, and faith around the memory of the naseberry tree. She explores undying love in the midst of strain, disappointment, and the rough edges of life, examining the ups and downs that many of the family encountered along the way. Although the family had few luxuries, they were happy. The family’s children never lost hope; God never gave up on them, and they never left His presence. And as a result of the foundation laid early in their lives, the Hall children excelled in most of their undertakings.
Enhanced with scripture references throughout, this personal narrative shares the history of a family and explores the lessons that their growth and faith can teach others.
