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.
