Very sad. Glad to have read it. Really amazing commentary and imagery about motherhood. Great perspective!

I’ve waited too late to review this book. I don’t remember much at all about it. Was it not memorable? Or was it that the short stories, being short stories, didn’t take as much time to read so more quickly left my memory banks? I better remember books I read before this one so I’m perplexed. Well, I do recall liking the book, it was compelling, but mostly sad. It felt like no spark of joy exists in Haiti or amongst Haitians. Perhaps that’s the truth from what I read in the news about this very poor country embroiled in turmoil. I do remember the last story, and I loved the premise and writing style. The author’s talented. I probably should try one of her novels next that will more likely stick with me.… (mais)
