Claudette’s memoir begins at age 22 and ends when she is 59. Her story comes from a single mother’s perspective giving us a glimpse into St Lucian customs.
Quote from her book: "A thousand buds of happiness exploded in me. A heat-wave engulfed me. I could feel my face ablaze. My smile was as calm and wide as the Caribbean Sea. Yes indeed, this was the moment I had waited for. My big elaborate wedding was happening with my soul mate, the man who knew how to love me. The man who knew how to marry me. The man who knew how to get the sunrise from my icy heart. There was a peace flowing from his heart into my heart."
