Summary:

At an astonishingly young age, Edwidge Danticat has become one of our most celebrated new novelists, a writer who evokes the wonder, terror, and heartache of her native Haiti--and the enduring strength of Haiti's women--with a vibrant imagery and narrative grace that bear witness to her people's suffering and courage. At the age of twelve, Sophie Caco is sent from her impoverished village of Croix-des-Rosets to New York, to be reunited with a mother she barely remembers. There she discovers secrets that no child should ever know, and a legacy of shame that can be healed only when she returns to Haiti--to the women who first reared her. What ensues is a passionate journey through a landscape charged with the supernatural and scarred by political violence, in a novel that bears witness to the traditions, suffering, and wisdom of an entire people.

    Very good 'read' it was, read along with the actual book, only issue was the nonuse of actual terms used in the book, 'Negro' should have been used as the author had included and written, in not ding so, can only lead to possible censorship which is only a step away from Hitlerism and book burning. Remember, art never turns its back on Truth, nor apologies for it. Otherwise good stuff here.
