Dominoes : a novel / Phoebe McIntosh.

McIntosh, Phoebe, (author.).

"Dominoes opens in London, twenty-nine days before the wedding of a young couple. Layla is a mixed-race woman--with a Black, Jamaican mother, and a white father she's never met--and Andy is a white man of Scottish descent. When they first meet at a party, they can't believe how instant their chemistry is, and how quickly their relationship unfolds. But the commonalities between the two outweigh their differences; funnily enough, they even share a last name: McKinnon. Layla's best friend, Sera, isn't so sure--about Andy, or the fact that her best friend is engaged to marry a white man. As Layla's wedding date approaches, Sera prompts her friend to research her heritage more, and in the process Layla makes a shocking discovery: It's not just possible but extremely likely that Andy's ancestors enslaved Layla's in Jamaica, and that the money from that enslavement helped build his family's wealth. What seemed like a fairy-tale romance is suddenly derailed as Layla begins to uncover parts of her history and identity that she never could have imagined--or had simply learnt to ignore. The process takes her to Jamaica for the first time, where she meets family members she's never known, and uncovers truths about her family's history that will change the way she thinks about herself and her future. As the clock ticks down to her wedding--four days, three days, two days--Layla must make a decision: commit to the man she loves, or expose a shameful history that has gone unspoken for far too long"-- Provided by publisher
