When she meets Farouk Karam, an ambitious young policeman (so taken with Marcia that he elicits the help of a tea-brewing obeah woman to guarantee her ardor), the risks and rewards in Marcias life amplify forever.On an island rich with laughter, Calypso, Carnival, cricket, beaches and salty air, sweet fruits and spicy stews, the novel follows Marcia and Farouk from their amusing and passionate courtship through personal and historical events that threaten Marcias secret, entangle the couple and their children in a scandal, and endanger the future for all of them.Til the Well Runs Dry tells the twinned stories of a spirited womans love for one man and her bottomless devotion to her children.

For readers who cherish the previously untold stories of womens lives, here is a story of grit and imperfection and love that has not been told before.
