Christine Grace majored in modern dance and creative writing. When the dancing ended, the writing took over. The result was a Kirkus Star-reviewed short-story collection, Rising from the Mire, and her debut novel, Sydney’s Skeletons. She was born in Jamaica and lives in California.
Kishore and Dipalee arrive in Jamaica in 1880 with new plans and new names–Harry Ingram and Opal Thompson. Kishore, Dipalee’s cousin, has saved her from an arranged marriage and, at the same time, has helped them both escape the lives of ‘Untouchables’.
