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 12, 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.

Amazing Narrator

The narrator made the experience even better. Her use of different accents and languages, as well as tones and volume when the story demanded a change dragged me into the story. I'm not one to listen to audio books much but this was definitely worthwhile.

Disappointed

I felt that the reader did a superb job with a less than superb story.

The story was mostly external, yet attempted to tackle significant internal conflict within the main characters. The first 20 or so chapters were told with the main character making decisions, but little explanation of why she made them. The reader has to go quite far in the book until the story reveals the "whys" and sometimes you just don't know because there is so very little character depth.
