Black Rock

by Amanda Smyth

The economic prose generates the heat and colour of the Caribbean and Celia's life is shaped by her intense longings, ambition and betrayal. A novel for those interested in relationships: the interactions between adult and adolescent, servant and master and the poor and the rich are all skillfully portrayed.
