Beautiful, evocative, heartbreaking, inspiring, sad, happy... The whole of human existence can be found in these pages. Danticat is an amazing writer, and all of these stories are worth reading. And for any woman who writes- Haitian or otherwise- the last story, "Epilogue: Women Like Us", on kitchen poets is a must read.

From our 2015 #80DayRead Summer Reading Club traveler Nicole: Awesome, interesting and exciting book. Learned a lot about Haitian family, their lives and the healing stories of everyone involved.
