A 1940s coming of age story set on a fictional Caribbean island that experiences the bombing of a ship moored in its harbor, a fire and devastating landslide that threaten to change the course of everyone’s lives.

The Provident Family lives in an impoverished community of Baxter's Yard on the fictional island of Au Tabor. The family’s dream of improving their situation rests on Victor, the oldest child and an outstanding student both academically and athletically. Through the help of a wealthy benefactor, Victor is given financial aid to attend a prestigious school. Upon graduation, he is awarded a scholarship to continue his studies but tragedy strikes before he can leave the island.
