Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 everknow, and a legacy of shame that can be healed only when she returns to Haiti--to the women who first reared her.

Synopsis:

A young Haitian girl comes of age torn between two cultures--the Haiti of her Tante Atie and Grandmother Ife, and the New York of her mother Martine
