This collection is a sensory journey from a warm green equatorial island to the changing seasons of a Prairie landscape. The poems explore the effects of colonialism, ancestral memories, and immigration on the poet's journey from youth to maturity. The frantic push for first-world development, rapidly eroding the once-pristine landscape and simple way of life of a third-world island, and creating a new race of colonials, it is passionately delineated.

"A brave and beautiful collection - at times reflective, at times haunting, but always, challenging us to rethink our ideas of home and our dilemmas of belonging."
- Ramabai Espinet
