As Addy Abraham journeys to the Caribbean to attend the funeral of the woman who had been her babysitter as a child and who had transformed her life, she is forced to confront the lies, myths, and challenges that have made her adult life so barren. A first novel.
As Styron's mournful but potent debut novel opens, Adelaide Abraham has just arrived on the fictional Caribbean island of St. Addy, as she's called, is attending the funeral of her childhood nanny, Lou—Louise Alfred—and she's staying not in a hotel, but with Lou's family. For, as becomes clear, Lou was Addy's family back when Addy was a disturbed and unruly child and her parents' marriage was breaking up.
