On the island of Tortola, the divide between rich tourists and poor locals is evident, especially when you're one of the locals. This short story follows a life in the day of an islander. She may be a cook and a maid, but she's also a young woman, and when she meets an charming male tourist, the lines between have and have-not begin to blur, and she dives head first into an encounter that could lead to much more.
