An unusual and fascinating setting for this story : Trinidad. I f you want to learn about the history and the inhabitants of this Island , this is the book to pick. However, the colloquial language in the dialogues hampers the flow of the novel.
Realism at its best : the USA is far from being a dream land for some immigrants. Ms Francis-Sharma has the courage and talent to show it.
