A Sea-Grape Tree

A Sea-Grape Tree

In 1933 we meet Rebecca, heroine of THE BALLAD AND THE SOURCE – but in a different world, on many levels. Betrayed by her married lover, Rebecca arrives alone at a small Caribbean island. Here, along with the splendidly eccentric members of the British expatriate colony, she meets the former ace pilot Johnny, crippled now, a misanthropic recluse: for both of them their passionate affair the powerful life force love can be. Here too she encounters voices from the past and the vibrant spirit of Mrs. Jardine – voices which remind Rebecca of the girl she was and the woman she could become.
