Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Set in contemporary Canada and on a Caribbean island during World War II, Shani Mootoo's second novel, He Drown She in the Sea, is the story of two childhood friends whose enduring bond drives them late in life to break free from the social manacles that have kept them apart. Harry, the half-caste son of a proud, hardworking maid, and Rose, the daughter of his mother's well-to-do employer, are inseparable as children. Theirs is a friendship that knows nothing of race or class or the other subtle hierarchies that define island society. But their ties are severed one night during World War II. When, years later, Harry and Rose cross paths again in Vancouver, they have a life-affirming affair. It is an awakening for her, a form of retribution for Harry, and this liaison sets in motion a climactic series of events. A spellbinding tale of forbidden love by the author of the Giller Prize finalist Cereus Bloom at Night, He Drown She in the Sea is a lyrical, sensuous, and suspenseful story about the danger of love and the euphoria and sacrifice that come with defying the life one is born into.
