Edwidge Danticat's elegiac second novel (after the Oprah-annointed Breath, Eyes, Memory) tells the story of an island divided -- its history of militaristic takeovers, fractured territories, and orphaned people. Smelling of cane and parsley and echoing with the roar of rushing water, this "tiny piece of land" shared by Haitians and Dominicans forms a rich backdrop for narrator Amabelle's tale of survival and longing, the story of an orphan searching for her memory, her lover, and her home.


A joy to read.
