Praise Song for the Widow

Paule Marshall  (1983)

This is a beautiful story about a middle-aged woman from Harlem who jumps ship while on a Caribbean cruise. Some inner-voice impels her to stay on an island she has never seen, where she knows no one. During her adventure, she discovers some truths about herself and her past. I really enjoyed meeting Avey Johnson and going with her on this spiritual journey.
