At the age of twelve, 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.I started writing Breath, Eyes, Memory when I was eighteen years old. ... to write for the newspaper past my senior year, but my longtime editor, Keith Hefner, invited me to submit one final piece, an essay called a€œA World Full of Strangers.
