"As a novel it is compelling, its heroine unforgettable. . . . A simply wonderful read."--"The Globe and Mail"

"This novel is a jewel that promises the reader a lesson in dancing to the right tune."--"Jamaica Observer"

Her mother's death and her father's madness leave G unloved and unwanted as a child. Her runaway marriage brings her children but not the fulfillment she yearns for. Years later, a hurricane destroys her Jamaican country house where she lives alone and she ends up--unwillingly--in a ritzy retirement home in the city, placed there by her well-to-do but distant daughter.
