Hillhouse book. Still think that beyond being a great read it captures a snapshot of a point in time in Antigua and Barbuda and should make us question our biases and pre judgments- the old ones and the new ones. Should be recommended reading both for literature and for sociology at a sixth form level anywhere in the Caribbean and beyond. The characters inhabited an Antigua that made me feel that I had gone back home to hear about Roland Prince playing his music, to get a spin on the life that Dominican-Antiguans have after settling in a land where some of their fathers had left to cut sugar cane in Santo Domingo. I gave my book to a Canadian friend to read. I would recommend it to anyone to read; for Antiguans, make sure you add this to your gift list for Christmas.

Hillhouse arms the characters with larger social conflicts that far outshine the romance Michael and Selena struggle for romantic survival and for self-definition, despite their histories as discarded children surrounded by bitterness. Every character has some kind of betrayal echoing in their lives.
