A determined woman grapples with going public to save an important, protected natural reserve from officials and new found love.
In ‘Spirit of the Seahorse’ a strong, determined woman grapples with going public in the fight to save a valuable protected natural reserve, while attempting to save her sanity from two romantic relationships: (her country and a new boyfriend), with mixed values.
In a beautiful love story Moya may have to choose between the love for her home, (a small fishing village in the largest protected natural reserve on the Island of Jamaica ), and a love for a man she’s recently met and falling hard.
Life becomes increasingly unsettling because of a Chinese company that maybe given the go ahead to build and lease a huge billion dollar trans-shipment port in her village bay, which will destroy the countries richest marine life and wetlands and a living for hundreds of fisher folk.
If developed, it will also intensify climate change problems already on the Island, by destroying coastal land protection against unusual rain storms and monster systems that’s now the new norm. In short, it will change an entire way of life that could perhaps bring long term poverty instead of wealth.
Sick of the injustice, the short sightedness and the siege imposed on citizens, as a lawyer and a junior Member of Parliament, she decides to sue her own party and speaks out about the wrongs of the deal and with village support tries to stall the project as these gatekeepers will stop at nothing.
Grappling with going public in a poor Island nation from the south, such a move is not only dangerous, it's suicidal. Unfortunately her boyfriend who begins to understand her, throws a curve by having mixed feelings due to his own financial constraints, as he and his buddies have a plan to make a killing from the Chinese.
