Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a baby girl is abandoned at birth, Reverend Arlington and his wife Ginny are only too happy to adopt her. The media cover this moving story, and a Nigerian woman living in England takes more than a passing interest in the Arlingtons. She decides that they world provide the right Christian home for her own baby, Chester. Shortly afterwards, Chester is delivered to social services with a letter explaining that the Arlingtons should be his new parents. So young Chester enters the vicarage of the sleepy seaside village of St Simon. He is the only black child for miles around.

The New Tribe tells the story of Chester's long search for his true identity, and the challenges he faces as a black child in a white family.

Thanks for allowing me comment on the tittle "the new tribe".
Just by seeing this tittle it tell in a way that there is something old and new in it. It also tells us that it is about Africa because usually africans talk about tribes. But there something not really clear in the tittle is the new tribe the combination of the 2 societies or is it only this little black girl?
I like this ambiguity because it gives the need to know more about the book
