Lucy's father was an older man when he married her mother, and she describes their arrangement as mutually beneficial. Ungar, Bouson, J.

      A few years later, Kincaid returns to Antigua and writes about her experience. Lucy, pp. Yet, as Lucy is driven through her new city, she is already pervaded by a deep dissatisfaction because her expectations do not live up to the bleaker reality. Xuela is a true antiheroine, scornful, disaffected and entirely unlovable. At several points in the story, Lucy makes observations that may be unobvious to the reader.

      In the above quote, Xuela demonstrates how this memory has impacted both the mind and the body that are scarred indelibly. The novel is set on tiny Dominica, the poorest of the Caribbean islands, and casts a long unvarnished glance backward at the life of its protagonist, year-old Xuela Claudette Richardson. Boston: Little, Brown, The seasons also climax differences between Lucy's old surroundings and her new northern climate.
