Summary
In the heart of London's Bloomsbury, Gwendolen, not yet truly famous as the writer 'Jean Rhys', is presented with the opportunity she has been waiting for. Her husband has received an unexpected inheritance and she can, at last, return to the island of her childhood. For Gwendolen, Dominica is a place of freedom and beauty, far away from the lonely nights and failed dreams of England. But this visit home compels her to reflect on the events of her past, and on what they may mean for her future
Summary
A suspenseful reimagining of the life of Jean Rhys, author of Wide Sargasso Sea, traces her tempestuous life in Edwardian England and 1920s Paris before a brief visit transforms her views about colonization in the Caribbean of her childhood
