Born on England's cold and rocky Cornish coast, Edna Manley came to Jamaica in 1922. As the wife of a National Hero and mother to the island's fifth prime minister, Edna's life was inextricably linked with Jamaican politics. But she was destined to leave her own mark on her adopted country. Her legacy - much less easily defined, perhaps, than either her husband's or her son's - can be seen and heard and read. In Horses in Her Hair, Rachel Manley - Edna's granddaughter and an award winning author - tells the remarkable story of her grandmother's life.
