What happens when people return to the land of their birth after decades away? The migrants’ journey is a well-told story but much less is known about those who return. Why do they go back? What is it like to be back home? Home Again is a collection of contemporary real-life stories by men and women who have returned to Dominica. Their feelings and experiences, expressed in their own words, link the challenges of the past to both the positive aspects of return – a sense of belonging and well-being – and also to its difficulties – of rejection and frustration.
Compelling, moving and intensely personal, Home Again, is a revealing insight into the lives of these pioneering migrants.
