The inspiration of this book comes through the realization of life circumstances. Glenroy Salomon Burke realized early as a boy what he could do to help his family. Here in his autobiographical work Life’s Rivers Cross, readers can get the kernels of wisdom stemming from hard work in making a dream come true. The author focused himself on one thing, and no matter the obstacles, made it the impetus to achieve. He is the chef/owner of one of the most popular restaurants in Cape Cod, and here he recalls the long journey from his childhood in his native Jamaica to his traveling to the United States and fulfilling a promise he made to his mother to help her and their family have better lives.

Uncommon wisdom from the author Glenroy Solomon Burke, whose youth takes his autobiography through many of life’s rivers… this is a heartening work about a well-lived life from a person who wrote his own success story.
