The son of a single parent, a black Jamaican woman who was a poor domestic worker, author Ralston G. Bishop narrates the story of his life in qAcceptance is the Beginning of Change.q From his birth in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, in 1974, to growing up poor in the parish of St Ann, to turning to crime, to spending time in prison, Bishop shares his journey and discusses the lessons he's learned along the way. Now a farmer and a poet, he reflects on poverty and its far-reaching effect on people, and he tells of the importance of having complete faith and trust in God. From rags to riches and from riches to rags, this memoir shares Bishop's story as he learns to accept the regrets of his past and come to terms with a new present and future. Honest and disclosing, qAcceptance is the Beginning of Changeq communicates that it's not about what one lacks in life, it is about what one has. It's not about the mistakes-it's about the lessons gained.Ralston G.
