New Paperback 9789768189837 Joyce Buchanan's love and admiration for the son who passed away at the age of 42, about the age his own father had, provides the compelling impetus for the writing of this book, Quest for a Dream.It was not an easy thing for her, as a mother, to see the life of her eldest son snuffed out so soon and so unexpectedly, when he appeared to be on the eve of realizing his political ambitions, having been named by former Jamaican Prime Minister P.J. Patterson as his successor in Parliament and with hopes of perhaps following him also as head of state. "Norman's death", she muses at the end, "enables us to see his life as a ministry that reached out to people. He converted us to his compassionate way of thinking and we will continue to spread the message of hope." (Item ID: 154149)
