This novel was very moving and allowed the reader a inside perspective to some of the cultural differences experienced by Haitian women
An emotional story of generations of Haitian women.

this novel is delicate, profound and touching.
Reading it in Haiti, after the heartquake, it makes me feel part of their world. You can feel the sounds, the smells, the colours of the country. Edwige is never explicit nor violent in the language, but so vivid and dramatic in the stories she tells. A book that I recommend to everyone, in Haiti or not.
I am proud to be here now, so lucky to have found such a book in the mission's shelf. There is lot to learn from the book, lots to learn from haitians.
