Summary (From the publisher):

Trinidad in 1961 is a country inching toward independence, but village life is hard, and Narpat, a sugarcane farmer, is sickened by the corruption he sees all around him. He scorns his neighbours as greedy, shiftless and enslaved to the rumshop, and sets out to improve life for his family and contemporaries, much to their dismay. It's up to his adoring son, Jeeves, to save Narpat from his ever-wilder "futurist" plans. A big novel about a small place, A Perfect Pledge depicts one village's struggle to find it's identity in a rapidly changing world, and celebrates both the heartbreak of failed dreams and the resilience of the human spirit.
