How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her HouseJones, Cherie
Wealthy tourists flock to the tropical delights of Baxter's Beach, Barbados, but for the locals who never get to leave, life in the 1980s is far from idyllic.
Lala, whose home is a beachside shack, was raised with the cautionary tale of what happens to girls who disobey their mothers, but still the intergenerational trauma continues.
Lala's husband Adan, her grandmother Wilma, her friend and champion Tone; they all tell a different story of this Caribbean paradise, of hardship and violence as the sun shines and the sea sparkles.
Told from a variety of perspectives, this is a powerful and haunting story of paradise lost.
