あらすじ・解説

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.

A MUST read/listen!!!

I was first introduced to this novel 12 years ago as a freshman at Spelman College. This story has so many themes that relate to the lives of all women. A true “page turner.” Each time I read or listen to this novel I gain something. Pass on to your friends! Thank you Danticat and thank you Miles for such a great narration. <3

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.

Words doing magic

This is an amazing story, beautiful and sad, told in a most evocative manner. The words paint worlds and the narrator helps giving them extra hew and depth. Travel as you listen to different places of experience.

Bad

Absolutely terrible. Read for a class and cannot get thoes hours back for my life. Maybe if I wasn't forced it would be different but this was kinda messed up.

The Moments

There were moments of pure brilliance... At one point, I lost my breath as if I had been running.

Profound story of women's sexual journey

Sad and hard topic beautifully handled by the reader. Eloquent voices enchanted. Many times I wanted the story to not be so painful. Truth can be hard to bear. Sigh.

With a great deal of cultural significance

From an outsiders perspective, there is a lot of Haitian familial culture to be gleaned.
