Lauren Francis-Sharmaโ€”’Til The Well Runs Dry (Trinidad)

A family secret, a passionate love story and a tea-brewing obeah woman all take center stage in this epic multi-generational saga that takes the reader from Trinidad in the 1940s to the USA in the 1960s. Loosely based on the fragmented and slightly mysterious life of her own grandmother, Francis-Sharma takes the reader on an exploration of relationships within the context of Trini culture, racial tension and societal expectations.
