Synopsis: Young Dominican single mother Selena Cruz is trying to make a new life for herself in Antigua, dealing with prejudice, poverty, and her interfering sister. When she meets handsome cricket coach Michael Lindo, her world is turned upside down. The course of true love is never smooth, and Michael and Selena?s story is no exception as they try to bridge the gap between their two cultures and their personal expectations of love. Romantic and delightful, this novella by Joanne C. Hillhouse looks at immigration and cross-cultural relationships in a warm and very human way. Dancing Nude in the Moonlight was first published in 2004, and it is reissued here along with selected poems and stories from Joanne C. Hillhouse?s wide collection of work. She has been published in Caribbean, North American, and African literary journals.
Product Description: Selena's ex-husband has left her in a strange land with a baby and two younger sisters to care for. It's hard for Spanish-speaking immigrants to get work, and Selena earns little from the crochet dolls and doilies she makes to sell. The middle sister, Celia, works in a hotel at a job she hates, but it pays the rent and puts food on the table. Pamela is still at school. The three came from the Dominican Republic in the hope of a better living in Antigua. But Antiguans are hostile to the immigrant community in their midst, seeing the newcomers as intruders come to steal away their jobs and their men folk. Only Pamela settles easily into the new life.
