Offering a richly nuanced portrayal of Haiti as a place of ethnic and cultural complexity, this novel explores the important role of spirituality in Caribbean life and culture. Told through multiple voices in a nonlinear fashion, the narrative unfolds through the perspectives of Catherine, a girl living in Iowa who travels home to Haiti upon hearing about the death of her aunt Ruth, who has been murdered in her home; Rose, Catherine's mother who commits suicide; and Romulus, her half brother who is lost to addiction and despair. Traversing the terrains of working-class French Canada, expatriate Paris, and the hills above Port au Prince and tracing lives that cross boundaries of time and place, this is a deeply absorbing portrayal of a fragmented family and country whose deepest connections lie in a shared sense of spirituality.
