The Cay

A book with a life lesson.

Timothy and Phillip

The Cay has two main characters. The first character we meet in the story is Phillip. Phillip, his mother, and his father moved from Virginia to Curacao, where his father found a job.

The second character is Timothy, a black man that worked on the ship that Phillip and his mother were on.


Phillip's mother was not found of "colored people" , and she had a great influence on Phillip. Don not forget that Timothy was a black man. I wonder how this will play out!

The cay is a great book, that teaches the reader a wonderful life lesson.
