Description


Carey McCullough is haunted by a recurring dream and a damaged past. But the more he tries to forget, the more uprooted he feels. Then, while in Jamaica, he crosses paths with a radiant woman who attracts him like a flame. Their undeniable attraction is much more than chemistry. As Carey soon discovers from a “reader” of the spirit world, he and Frances share a history that has linked their souls for more than four hundred years. Though Carey views past lives with skepticism, he cannot explain knowing the language of an ancient African people—in particular the phrase: “Mulewe anekoso kuduwe bana” (“I will search until I find you”).

Yet Frances conceals secrets of her own, with devastating consequences. And while Carey visits his best friend, a bond that was once thought to be unbreakable will be put to the ultimate test as startling truths at last emerge. . . .

Praise For…


PRAISE FOR WAITING IN VAIN

A #1 Blackboard bestseller and a Washington Post Critic’s Choice

“[Waiting In Vain] is in danger of remaining a work perceived primarily as yet
another black romantic tale. . . . The love story is interesting,
but not the most compelling element of the novel: What is intriguing
is the assurance of the voice, the strength of characterization,
and the clear redefinition of the Caribbean novel.”
The Washington Post Book World

“A STUNNING DEBUT...IF YOU’VE EVER DARED TO FOLLOW YOUR PASSION,
THEN YOU MUST READ WAITING IN VAIN. . . .
CHANNER HAS THE EAR OF A POET AND THE HEART OF A LOVER.”
E. LYNN HARRIS

“A LAVISH AND LUSH READ FILLED WITH SPICE, SASS, AND PASSION.”
DIANE MCKINNEY-WHETSTONE

“EROTIC AND SENSUAL . . . THE PROSE IS PASSIONATE, SEXUAL, AND HONEST.”
Today’s Black Woman

WAITING IN VAIN “IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A GIFTED WRITER
DECIDES TO GET ROMANTIC.”
Time Out New York
