Ten years after the end of Waiting in Vain, there is trouble in paradise for Fire and Sylvia. While on an extended visit to London, their historic home in Jamaica is burnt to the ground. Blaming it on Fire - it was his decision to stay in London - Sylvia mourns the loss of the novel she's been writing for the last decade that went up in the flames. Sylvia had put their marriage and her desire for children on hold in order to finish the book, and Fire is getting tired of being supportive. Adding insult to injury, it's only a month before Fire must set off on his latest book tour. And the closer his departure draws, the angrier Sylvia gets. As Channer's characters move across geographies and cultures with ease, they operate as if they know and own the world. Lover's Rock is the classic story of an American woman abroad - and more.
