Description

"As universally touching as it is original." -The New York Times

Black Caucus of the American Library Association 2015 Honor Book in Fiction
Booklist Starred Review
O, The Oprah Magazine "10 Titles to Pick Up Now"

A glorious and moving multigenerational, multicultural saga that sweeps from the 1940s through the 1960s in Trinidad and the United States.

In a seaside village in the north of Trinidad, young Marcia Garcia, a gifted and smart-mouthed sixteen-year-old seamstress, lives alone, raising two small boys and guarding a family secret. When she meets Farouk Karam, an ambitious young policeman (so taken with Marcia that he elicits help from a tea-brewing obeah woman to guarantee her ardor), the rewards and risks in Marcia's life amplify forever.

'Til the Well Runs Dry sees Marcia and Farouk from their sassy and passionate courtship through personal and historical events that threaten Marcia's secret, entangle the couple and their children in a tumultuous scandal, and put the future in doubt for all of them.

With this deeply human novel, Lauren Francis-Sharma gives us an unforgettable story about a woman's love for a man, a mother's love for her children, and a people's love for an island rich with calypso and Carnival, cricket and salty air, sweet fruits and spicy stews-a story of grit, imperfection, steadfast love and of Trinidad that has never been told before.

Customer Reviews

A wonderful and powerful story

A strong woman managed to survive the secrets of her past and betrayal.

Beautifully written!

Truly a well-crafted and captivating read! I shed tears reading the last chapter of the book, which I felt held the release to all the pent up emotions I was feeling for the characters throughout the novel. For a first effort, the author really did an amazing job and no one can be disappointed in this book.

Very good book

Very well written. Best book I've read in quite some time. The characters were well written and the description of the lush landscapes of Trinidad were wonderful.
