Cocoa Almond Darling
by Jeffra Hays
Young, white Milly runs away from her sexless husband. She thinks she knows about lust and love. Desperate for a job, she finds work with a married black man. Slowly and steadily, he seduces her. Illicit love entangles them both in a triangle of jealousy for the rest of their lives.
Now a grandmother, Milly tells us all, remembering, slowly and steadily, taking her time while breaking your heart.
