The Windrush Affair by Elsa Joseph is a short, beautiful story about Alyssa, a stowaway on the Windrush ship, travelling from the Caribbean to England, based on fact and written of the time. Alyssa was hoping for a new life in London, but was met with cold weather and even colder people. There follows her story about her job as a housekeeper for an aristocratic couple, leading to romance and a heart-wrenching ending. Well worth a read, the narrative takes shape around some letters written to Alyssa’s mother which really bring the character to life.
