    " The writing was good and the story engaging enough, but there were times when I felt she was trying too hard. The simple telling of her family's story would have been enough - the additional (almost hysterical) drama was a turn-off. "

    " I really liked this novel a lot, it was very well written. I like how the story was really about two fathers, Edwidge's biological father and her uncle, who had both been a father to Edwidge at various times in her life. I liked learning a bit about the Haitian culture, one in which I basically have read or really know nothing about. As you gather from the title, it is not necessarily a light hearted read with a happy ending. Yet, I do feel like it raised issues that should be discussed and our poignant to all of humanity, regardless of race or culture. It is a story of the human spirit, of love, of duty, and of ethics. It will be fun to discuss at book club! "
