About the Book

It is the mid-fifties in Jamaica. Twenty-two-year-old Bellinda Simms is a strong-willed, temperamental, fearless, and not very intelligent young woman who is accustomed to battling her way out of any situation. Now as she boards a banana boat with other migrants and begins a three-week journey to South Hampton, England, in search of a new beginning, Bellinda has no idea what awaits her. All she knows is that she wants to achieve her dreams.

When she finally arrives in England, Bellinda makes a shocking discovery: she is pregnant with her Jamaican boyfriend’s child. Determined to keep it a secret for as long as she can, Bellinda secures work on an estate with other immigrants and begins dating her cousin’s friend. When she experiences complications and is sent to the hospital, she is tended to by a male nurse. After Bellinda eventually recovers and continues with her pregnancy, a chain of events unfurls that lead her down unexpected paths. Will Bellinda’s faith be enough to help her endure all her challenges?

Belinda Bell is the tale of a young woman’s experiences as life takes her from Jamaica, West Indies, to South Hampton, England, to what she hopes is a new beginning.
