Summary
"'Men will want you like they want a glass of rum-- One man will love you. But you won't love him. You will destroy his life. The one you love will break your heart in two.' So says the soothsayer, when predicting young Celia's future. Raised in the tropics of Tobago by an aunt she loves and an uncle she fears, Celia has never felt that she belonged. When her uncle-- a man the neighbors call Allah because he thinks himself mightier than God-- does something unforgivable, Celia escapes to the bustling capital city. There she quickly embraces her burgeoning independence, but her search for a place to call home is soon complicated by an affectionate friendship with William, a thoughtful gardener, and a strong sexual tension with her employer. All too quickly, Celia finds herself fulfilling the soothsayer's predictions and living a life of tangled desperation-- trapped between the man who offers her passion and the one who offers his heart" -- from publisher's web site
