New Book: Unburnable by Marie-Elena John
After twenty years away, Lillian returns to her island of birth to face the demons of her past, and with the help of Teddy, a man who has loved her for many years, she may yet find a way to heal.
Set in both contemporary Washington, D.C. and Dominica, and switching back and forth between contemporary and historical stories, Unburnable traverses literary genres and defies an easy label: page-turner, love story, historical fiction, and murder mystery. The story -- richly textured and lushly rendered--weaves together Caribbean history, African culture, and American sensibilities, and the revelations of its final pages bring to light an important, but little-known aspect of Caribbean history.
