From Back Cover:
"In this widely praised and beautifully renderd novel, Joseph Olshan gives us the story of the relationship between a small New York boy and the Jamaican woman who starts as his parents' housekeeper and becomes the central figure in his life.
Clara's Heart
When David's parents return from a trip to Jamaica with the formidable Clara Mayfield in tow, the boy wishes only that she would leave him to the questionable comfort of life with his mother and father. But Clara draws him in-with her warmth, with the colorful sound of her Jamaican patois, with her fierce wisdom...and with the mysteries she holds deep in her heart. Her story-their story-is rich, rewarding, often funny, and always deeply compelling."
