From the TALK series, Contemporary Immigration
Discussion Leader: Martha Ortiz Sanchez

Sophie makes the difficult transition from rural Haiti to an impoverished New York. Sexual trauma is a central motif for the book, through Sophie's past, as she comes of age, and through the difficult path toward familial reconciliation. "I come from a place where breath, eyes, and memory are one," Sophie declares, as she comes to terms with that dark heritage. 236 pp.
