A complex exploration of the cultural conflicts of race and gender, this novel focuses on the journey of a Guyanese woman from her British colonial country to the deeply racist London of the 1950s. Without an extended family support system or an understanding of her new home, she finds comfort in her work with troubled children of fellow black settlers. Confronting racial divides, memories of a cruel childhood, and the oppression of women, this story emphasizes the power of human solidarity beyond ethnicity and gender.
