Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once thought to be destined for spinsterhood, Aunt Meterling seems to have found love at last with a short, elegant Englishman who wears white suits. But while all the tongues on the small island of Pi start to wag as soon as their engagement is announced, even the most stalwart of the gossips is shocked when the wedding ends in tragedy and Meterling is left widowed and pregnant.   

 

The family, from its children to its grandmother, does its best to keep a watchful eye over the grieving expectant mother. Still, when the groom's cousin arrives from England and a new romance blossoms, no one knows how to react, least of all Meterling herself, who is suddenly torn between respecting tradition and taking the first few steps toward a new life.
