Celebrating women's capacity to endure life's hardships with resilience, stoicism, and humor, this brilliant collection of short stories, meditations, and prose poems paints a vivid picture of life in the Caribbean. Touching on women of many ages and ethnicities, from towns and from the countryside, and in transition - escaping from the hard circumstances of island life and in search of material security in the United States - these engrossing stories demonstrate how even within Trinidad's satirical and sometimes cynical culture, women are capable of developing a sense of self and community.
