Claire of the Sea Light by Edwidge Danticat

claire of the sea lightWhat could be more different from US culture and family life than the world of Haiti? Poverty and love, class systems and secrets characterize this story of a little girl and her father and the impossible choices they have to make. With French and Haitian Creole woven beautifully into the dialogue and narrative, this is a book for the ages, for the heart and soul and mind.
