Lauren Francis-Sharma's 'Til the Well Runs Dry opens in a seaside village in the north of Trinidad where young Marcia Garcia, a gifted and smart-mouthed 16-year-old seamstress, lives alone, raising two small boys and guarding a family secret. When she meets Farouk Karam, an ambitious young policeman, the risks and rewards in Marcia's 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 Marcia's 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 woman's love for one man and her bottomless devotion to her children. For readers who cherish the previously untold stories of women's lives, here is a story of grit and imperfection and love that has not been told before.

I loved this book. The way Lauren made the characters visible, the rich culture, traditions,immigration and how Americans take advantage of immigrants. She even highlighted colorism and racism within the same race and country. Marcia Garcia a Trinidadian is the protagonist and the face of immigration. All she ever wanted is a better life for her and her children. In the meantime, she gets threatened, rapped, kidnapped/held against her will, made to work for pennies on the dollar, lied on, loss her children and much more. I was rooting for Marcia. I hoped she'd find love and get her kids to America, but as the title says "Til the Well Runs Dry..... #Book24of2021 #bookworm #whatsnext
