Lala is eight months pregnant when her waters break unexpectedly
during the night. Her husband is nowhere to be found, so she flees
the house in search of him. Adan has been out doing a burglary that
has gone horribly wrong, and now he's killed a white man. But a
baby won't wait, and Lala has to get to hospital where she learns
three things: one - there is no toilet paper in hospital; two - the
nurses shout that it's your fault for getting pregnant, nothing to
do with a man; three - they know the baby will be born dead and
won't consider calling a doctor. But Lala is determined to prove
them wrong. Mira Whalen has only recently married Peter, the
husband who now lies dead, sprawled across their bed. He loved her,
his second wife and she loved him. But last night they had a row,
and she wishes they hadn't. Just as she wishes that she hadn't
confronted her husband's murderer and pulled the stocking off his
face. For now he knows who exactly who she is. HOW THE ONE-ARMED
SISTER SWEEPS HER HOUSE is the story of two marriages, and of a
beautiful island paradise where, beyond the white sand beaches and
the wealthy tourists, lies poverty, menacing violence and a desire
among the women to speak out and survive.
