The Cricket\'s Serenade

The Cricket's Serenade

(2005)
A novel by

 
Souci Alexander, a poor young woman from the mountainous interior of Jamaica, agrees to a platonic marriage in order to further an ambitious politician's career. He is running for prime minister and believes that his mixed-race background is becoming an issue with his predominantly black constituency. The Crickets' Serenade follows Souci from her initial days of joy, as she becomes a member of Caribbean society, to the hopelessness she experiences when the love she develops for the man she has married is not reciprocated. In her desperation, she tries to learn more about her husband by delving into his past. What she discovers is a man whose controlled and politic exterior, contrasts sharply with a stormy, passionate human being who may be capable of unspeakable horror.
