Description
An elegantly written and unforgettable story about a daughter's love - and where that love lodges when her parents are less than lovable. Addy Abraham was practically a feral child, untamable and wild - until a new babysitter arrived, Louise, who gave her a haven from her parents' pitched battles. News of Louise's death startles Addy out of the trance that has become her adult life. She flies to the Caribbean for the funeral, and amid the chaos and grief of Louise's family, Addy confronts the myths that helped her survive her childhood - the same ones that have made her adult life a barren ground. Celebrating Louise's life, she arrives at a new hope for her own.

display_description Now in paperback, the acclaimed first novel that movingly charts the intersection of two lives, two worlds — the story of a fierce and untameable young girl, growing up "privileged" in a New England household darkened by her parents' epically unhappy marriage, and the Caribbean nanny who has left her own family a thousand miles behind to live among strangers. At the heart of this vibrant and emotionally searing novel is a tale of finding a sense of belonging in an unexpected place.
— Ideal for reading groups — with a bound-in reading group guide. A novel sure to spark discussion about parent/child relationships.
