The Back of the Book: Celia’s mother died bringing her into the world – when one soul flies in, another flies out, her aunt Tassi says. So she lives in Black Rock, Tobago, with her twin cousins and Tassi’s second husband Roman, a man so sly he could crawl under a snake’s belly on stilts. Celia thiks he’s the devil, so when he proves her right, she can’t bear to share a roof with him any longer. That night, while the world is still as if it is dead, she runs away to Trinidad.
