Her stories are always very specifically located in terms both of time and place There would be no other guests, but my cousin Paul hoped to be on leave for Christmas

Her stories are always very specifically located in terms both of time and place. She is meticulous in her descriptions, summoning up backdrops against which we can readily picture the events as they unfold. There would be no other guests, but my cousin Paul hoped to be on leave for Christmas. I was curious to meet him. He was my only surviving cousin, the younger son of my mother’s brother and about six years older than I. We had never met, partly because of the family feud, partly because his mother was French and much of his youth spent in that country.

Evoking a vivid portrait of life in the West Indies, six diverse tales recount the stories of a future-telling lady who reveals the key role of Jamaican healers, a young girl who meets some unusual ghosts, and others.
