Front Cover of The Twisted Circle: A Novel – by Rosaliene Bacchus

When I left the convent in December 1977, my career as an art and geography high school teacher smashed against the boulders defending Guyana’s coastline. Broken and lost, I was set adrift—without purpose or direction for my return to secular life. Inspiration for my creative artistic expression vanished with the prevailing winds. Never to return…until now.

On completion of my second novel, The Twisted Circle, I had contacted two artists I knew about designing my front cover. Both declined to take on the project. Book cover design was not part of their expertise.

ROSALIENE BACCHUS’S FIRST BOOK:

UNDER THE TAMARIND TREE  — A Novel by Rosaliene Bacchus

In this compelling story, a man who has endured much tragedy as a boy reaps the bitter fruit of deceit sown by his deceased father, threatening all he loves. While growing up in British Guiana, Richard Cheong wrestles with guilt after his younger brother is murdered and his mother’s death shortly thereafter.

As the lone surviving son, Richard believes that only a son can redeem his tormented soul and end his life of poverty and servitude to his father’s sister. After he marries the beautiful and headstrong Gloria, she bears him three girls. But in 1953 as Richard awaits the birth of what he hopes will be his first son, the British governor orchestrates a troop invasion, suspends the Guianese Constitution, and disbands the leftist government. As a chain of events unfurls that splinters Richard’s life and alters the course of his country, political unrest rages across the colony.
