"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.
