HELEN: was a member of London's complacent chattering classes, until her marriage becomes a trap. Now, alone with her teenaged son Toby, she lives on the fringes, belonging nowhere.
MARCIA: is descended from Africans who came as slaves to Bristol. Mature but cynical, hardened by the irresponsibility of the men in her life, she befriends Helen, while her street-wise son, Cricket, takes Toby under his wing.
ELLIOT: is blonde, beautiful and Texan – a poor little rich girl who has seen and done it all, but still has an empty place in her soul.
Their Mediterranean voyage becomes a voyage of self-discovery as, amidst the intensity and explosive atmosphere of the journey, Helen, Marcia and Elliot seek the elusive answers to their individual quests.
‘Fine, expansive and explicit writing’
