Twelve-year-old Sophie Caco is removed from her impoverished Haitian village and sent to live in New York with her mother, a woman she barely knows. There, she learns about a terrible truth that shadows her family.

With the Oprah's Book Club Selection Breath, Eyes, Memory, Danticat contemplates the paradoxical coexistence of sublime beauty and terrible suffering in her homeland.

    " A moving, and at times disturbing, look at a Haitian immigrant's experience adjusting to life in America, and to living with her estranged mother. A very interesting view of an alternate immigrant experience, quite different from images we see on the news or read in the newspaper. "

    " This reminded me of the book Annie John by Jamaica Kincaid. But damn, this was a depressing one! The writing was vivid and the story was somewhat compelling, but mostly I just drudged through it to get it over with so I could take the book back to the library. "
