    Curdella Forbes is a professor of Caribbean literature at Howard University and the author of Flying with Icarus and Other Stories, A Permanent Freedom, and Songs of Silence. She lives in Takoma Park, Maryland.

    Set on the fictional, futuristic Caribbean island of Jacaranda—caught at the nexus between amazing technological advances and huge environmental hazards of globalization—this book recounts the tragic consequences of a forbidden love affair and a family torn apart by injustice. With a searing contrast between an island struggling under the threats of crime, migration, and global warming and an unforgettable love story, it provides an emotionally rewarding experience in which these contemporary issues are given fresh poignancy and meaning. A haunting sequence of narratives builds to tell a compelling tale of murder, psychological mayhem, and love while gleaming with Caribbean spirituality.
