About the book
Celia’s mother died bringing her into the world – when one soul flies in, another flies out, her aunt Tassi says. So she lives in Black Rock, Tobago, with her cousins and Tassi’s second husband Roman, a man so sly he could crawl under a snake’s belly on stilts. Celia thinks he’s the devil, so when he does something that proves her right, she runs away to Trinidad and a new life in service.
Reviewed by Sandy’s Reading Group
“A readable book with well-drawn characters – even the most sympathetic of whom were flawed. Well crafted plot lines although some predictability, but with a strong narrative drive that made you want to read to the end,”
star rating – ****
