The Wine of Astonishment by Earl Lovelace

"The Wine of Astonishment" is a gripping narrative that explores the struggle of a small, rural community in Trinidad during the early 20th century, as they grapple with the effects of colonialism, World War II, and the prohibition of their spiritual practice, the Shouter Baptist faith. The story is told through the eyes of Eva, a strong-willed matriarch, and her husband, Bee, the spiritual leader of the community. The novel examines themes of resilience, faith, and the fight for cultural and religious freedom.
