Sinopsis: Astonishingly moving. Anne Tyler, New York Times Book Review A work of exceptional wisdom, maturity, and generosity, one in which the palpable humanity of its characters transcends any considerations of race or sex. Washington Post Book World There is no limit to the kind of readership to which this novel will appeal. Booklist Avey Johnson a black, middle-aged, middle-class widow given to hats, gloves, and pearls has long since put behind her the Harlem of her childhood. Then on a cruise to the Caribbean with two friends, inspired by a troubling dream, she senses her life beginning to unravel and in a panic packs her bag in the middle of the night and abandons her friends at the next port of call. The unexpected and beautiful adventure that follows provides Avey with the links to the culture and history she has so long disavowed."
