    1. I've been globe trotting lately and exploring other countries and cultures.Dew Angels takes us to Jamaica to live with Nola. As the synopsis says, she committed the crime of being born with black skin. In a (fictional) town that is actually named for the fact that citizens are light skinned.What makes this book engrossing and hard to put down is the dynamics of Nola and her family. Nola and her community. The way the community treats each other. Plus all the parts of Jamaican culture added in fo [...]

    2. This is the debut novel by Melanie Schwapp, though you would never know as she writes like a seasoned pro. A young girl with very dark skin is growing up in a small fictional village in Jamaica where the lighter your skin is the more beautiful you are deemed to be. She is shunned not only by the community but by her own family. This book will have you on a roller coaster of emotion from horror and disbelief to inspiration and peace. The characters are described so well I could see them, and felt [...]

    3. I found this book in the airport in Montego Bay on my way out of Jamaica, having never had it come up on any Jamaican author lists or reading list searches that I did before travelling to the country. Similarly to all of the novels written by Jamaican authors that I've read it has some dark, real moments. However, this is what adds to the heart of the story. The struggles that the characters go through are lessons for all people, which is what makes the book so compelling and addictive to read. [...]

    4. Dew Angels is an amazing book. I didn’t know what to expect when I chose this book from Net Galley, and I am so glad that it was there. The writing is superb, providing incredibly vivid pictures of a place I’ve never been and introducing me to a young woman whose story is all-absorbing.Nola Chambers is a dark-skinned teenager born into a fair-skinned Jamaican family. As a result, she is verbally and physically abused by her father and shunned by those in her school and her village. A series [...]

    5. I loved that this story focused on women who had been persecuted and hurt (often by men or by their patriarchal society) finding strength, happiness and safety in their relationships with other women, as friends, mentors and surrogate family. It was wonderful to see Nola gradually take control of her life with the support of the family she found for herself after her family of origin failed to give her what she needed to thrive. This wasn’t an easy story to read – it broke my heart about twe [...]

    6. The words just flowed throughout the whole book. It's very hard to put down because you can't wait to see what happens next. Melanie schwapp is awesome! She really knows how to lure you into a book.I totally loved this book. It's believable from beginning to end. It had me smiling and laughing out loud in some parts, and crying in the rest. I couldn't put it down or quit talking about it when I wasn't reading. Loved all the twists and turns it took as you were reading it. Deeply moving as well a [...]

    7. This book is near and dear to my heart, because my friend's Mom wrote this book and I received a signed copy. With that said, I was a little nervous to read the book because I felt like I had to like it, added to that my friend told me how great the book was. In the end I have to admit- I absolutely ADOREDDew AngelsDew Angels is a story centered around Nola- a Jamaican girl born into a family who thinks having dark skin is an offense and proceeds to treat Nola as such. I would classify this as a [...]

    8. Ultimately Dew Angels is a celebration of finding the strength to overcome myriad struggles and cruelty; to find harmony and happiness. It is a vibrant addition to the great pantheon of literature dealing with race and colour.

    9. BeautifulVery nice and easy read. Uplifting story. Enjoyed the journey.Was easy to place yourself right there with the writer as the story unfolded.

    10. Dew Angels, by Melanie Schwapp, is the deeply moving and powerful story of Nola Chambers, a young Jamaican girl born with black skin into a fair-skinned family. Because of the color of Nola's skin she is subjected to cruel treatment by those within her family and the village in which she lives. Even Nola's father physically and verbally abuses the young girl who has been exposed to prejudice and bigotry her entire life.Author, Melanie Schwapp, cleverly masters the use of imagery in this heartfel [...]

    11. Through the coming-of-age experiences of one girl, we see how those who should be loving us the most, do sometimes cause the greatest hurt; intentionally or unintentionally. Set in Jamaica, the novel shows us how even the weak have something strong to give, and that women can do support each other.

    12. A beautiful, well-written story. I couldn't put this book down. Perhaps I was a little biased because the author is Jamaican and the storyline is set in Jamaica, but I do recommend reading this. Absolutely beautiful story of Nola.
