This novel is about a love affair between Jadine and Son, two Black Americans from very different worlds. Jadine is a beautiful fashion model who has been born with a silverspoon in her mouth thanks to the Streets, a wealthy white family who employ Jadine's aunt and uncle as servants. Son is a poor, strong-minded guy who washes up at the Streets' estate on a Caribbean island.
As Jadine and Son become involved, their affair brings the end of the world to the estate. They travel back to the U.S. to look for a place they can both feel at home, but find that their homes are just poison for each other. The struggle of Jadine and Son reveals the pain and compromises confronting Black Americans seeking to live and love in integrity in the States.
