Following on from the success of her first book “PLENTY MANGO – Postcards from the Caribbean”, SARAH DICKINSON is proud to announce the release of its sequel “PLENTY MORE MANGO – Postcards from the Caribbean Part II”.

Sarah spends half her time living on the tiny Caribbean island of Montserrat, 15 minutes flying time from Antigua, where she keeps a journal of the extraordinary and not so extraordinary things that happen within a small community.

Illustrated once again by her husband JOHN RENTON, she picks up the story after the volcanic eruption twenty five years ago and records, through the eyes of many Montserratians, how the island is coping with its crisis.

“Just spent a v indulgent few hours reading your book this afternoon..

LOVED IT!!!  Didn’t want it to end!

And I loved the illustrations, with little clues for those of us…”

(Review of Plenty Mango)

“Well done – I have only read the first couple of ‘postcards’ but I already know I am going to love it.  

I am completely full of admiration of your brilliant writing.”

(Review of Plenty Mango)

“Sarah Dickinson paints expressive word pictures of life in that unique community, her postcards embellished with illustrations by her husband, John… this is a very evocative treasury of observations on important events on the island.”

(Review of Plenty Mango)

“…this a charming book, full of real life stories and delightful illustrations. Highly recommended.” – Amazon Review

“The ‘postcards’, with evocative illustrations, slip down as easily as mango rum.” – Amazon Review

We meet Rose Willock, Queen of ZJB the local radio station, Calvin who can lead you to the elusive Oriole bird, ‘man of the people Moose’, the island’s oracle and Cheryl who is able to design you a costume for St. Patrick’s day on the back of an envelope. 

Full of humour, sometimes against herself, Sarah’s stories bring Montserrat to life as well as providing an historic record of survival in the face of a natural disaster.

Sarah has written two reference books “HOW TO TAKE ON THE MEDIA” and “EFFECTIVE PRESENTATION”; two novels “A SLICE OF LIME”, a comedy set in the Caribbean and “CROCODILE CLIPS” a satire based on the early days of an all-speech commercial radio station. 

She has a collection of short stories “MELODY” and two travel books “ZEBRAS ON THE RUNWAY” and “PLENTY MANGO – Postcards from the Caribbean.”

She is married to the architect/painter John Renton and they have two grown up sons and four grandchildren.

If you want to get fully up to speed then don’t forget to order “Plenty Mango – Postcards from the Caribbean“, Sarah’s first book in the series which starts her story of life on Montserrat with John.

PLENTY MANGO tells the story of the island’s struggle for survival through the eyes of SARAH DICKINSON who, with her architect husband John, had moved to the island to follow a dream of building luxury Caribbean style villas.

This is West Indian life as you may never have seen it before. An intimate portrait of the island’s peoples. There’s Honey Lady Cynthia, ‘Moose’ and his honesty bar, Sir George Martin and his Air Studios, the tiler who brews his very own mango ‘poteen’, Victor’s garage that sells Bibles alongside brake pads and the goat herd who heard the mountain ‘groanin’ many months before the volcano blew.
