It is the story of the dispossessed and displaced, of peoples whose history is ancient and whose future is yet to come. Here we meet Lissie, a woman of many pasts; Arveyda the great guitarist and his Latin American wife who has had to flee her homeland; Suwelo, the history teacher, and his former wife Fanny who has fallen in love with spirits. Hovering tantalisingly above their stories are Miss Celie and Shug, the beloved characters from THE COLOUR PURPLE.

One of my all-time favorite books! I have re-read this one many times over the years (something I rarely do) and I enjoy it more each time.

We called this "The Stupid of My Pretentious." Ugh. What a completely overrated author.
