Land of Love and Drowning : In the early 1900s, the Virgin Islands are transferred from Danish to American rule, and an important ship sinks into the Caribbean Sea. Orphaned by the shipwreck are two sisters and their half brother, now faced with an uncertain identity and future. Each of them is unusually beautiful, and each is in possession of a particular magic that will either sink or save them.<br /> <br /> Chronicling three generations of an island family from 1916 to the 1970s, <i>Land of Love and Drowning</i> is a novel of love and magic, set against the emergence of Saint Thomas into the modern world. Uniquely imagined, the story is told in a language and rhythm that evoke an entire world and way of life and love. Following the Bradshaw family through sixty years of fathers and daughters, mothers and sons, love affairs, curses, magical gifts, loyalties, births, deaths, and triumphs, <i>Land of Love and Drowning</i> is a gorgeous, vibrant debut by an exciting, prizewinning young writer.
