In the Caribbean, life is a phenomenon – a spectacle of eternal summer with days drenched in the glory of sunlight and nights that ignite the soul with desire. Rine Tyler is living the island illusion, an existence defined by beaches, cocktails and the titillating thrill of the uninhibited night life. Captivated by an endless inventory of lovers and companions, Rine relies on her gift for gambling to perpetuate the fantasy. But can the façade of this seemingly perfect life last forever when love comes calling? Set in the 1980s amid the decadence of the era, and spanning several exotic locales, Rine navigates through the highs and lows of searching for something intangible, yet very real. Through her desire and despair, she awaits, hoping for just a glimpse of the green flash. Part Jimmy Buffett meets the Great Gatsby, part Bridget Jones meets Less than Zero, Awaiting the Green Flash is a Caribbean vacation in a book!
