There were aspects of this book that were very good. Ultimately, it is a book about regret. It was neither uplifting, nor particularly thought-provoking. Rather, the main character appeared to devolve, rather than evolve. She spent her entire youth complaining - which made it difficult to like her. The husband was perpetually deaf to the vast unhappiness of his beloved wife, which made it difficult to like him as well. Both children were tedious. This could have been a great book - but missed the mark.

I listen to a lot of audiobooks. A LOT. And I have never, ever reached the end and immediately started it over again. I simply loved this story and mourned the ending...I want more! Superb writing paired with excellent narration brought all the characters to life. Brought the island to life. A very human and flawed, yet sympathetic cast. Starts just a tad slow, and the Trinidadian accent can be tricky (if you aren't accustomed, like me), but stick with it. Look forward to more from this author.
