In her richly drawn debut novel, A Thirst for Rain, Roslyn Carrington took readers to the foothills of northern Trinidad and into a close-knit community of men and women who struggled against grinding poverty -- and yet dared to reach for a life of beauty and meaning. Now, EVERY BITTER THING SWEET continues the bittersweet and captivating story of Rory and Odile, two of A Thirst for Rain's most intriguing characters.

As children, Rory and Odile were drawn together by a pure and innocent love...and torn apart by an act of rage that changed their lives forever. Four years later, they have chosen different paths, but their lives remain ever entangled. Odile, an exquisite beauty, is determined to show the world she needs neither a university education nor the help of a well-off older man to become "somebody". And Rory, grown from a troubled child into a giant of a man, denies his body's power and the lure of the boxing ring -- certain that he has inherited the terrible legacy of his abusive father: the "blood-mark" of violence.

Rory and Odile each struggle for independence and self-understanding. But it is only when they confront each other -- and the past -- that they find what they have been searching for: courage, strength, and the redemptive power of forgiveness.
