Publisher's Summary

Haunted by scandal and secrets, Lillian Baptiste fled Dominica when she was 14, after discovering she was the daughter of Iris, the half-crazy woman whose life was told of in chanté mas songs sung during Carnival - songs about a village on a mountaintop littered with secrets, masquerades that supposedly fly and wreak havoc, and a man who suddenly and mysteriously dropped dead.
After 20 years away, Lillian returns to her native island to face the demons of her past - and with the help of Teddy, a man who has loved her for many years, she may yet find a way to heal.
Set in both contemporary Washington, DC, and post-World War II Dominica, Unburnable weaves together West Indian history, African culture, and American sensibilities. Richly textured and lushly rendered, Unburnable showcases a welcome and assured new voice.
