    Twelve-year-old Sophie Caco is removed from her impoverished Haitian village and sent to live in New York with her mother, a woman she barely knows. There she learns about a terrible truth that shadows her family. With the Oprah's Book Club Selection Breath, Eyes, Memory, Danticat contemplates the paradoxical coexistence of sublime beauty and terrible suffering in her homeland.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book is excellent, Edwidge Danticat is a great story teller. I wouldn't recommend the audio book if you are Haitian, been to Haiti, speak Creole or know Haitians because the narrators accent is all wrong.


    What didn’t you like about Robin Miles’s performance?

    Her accent was all wrong, it was like she was trying to have a Jamaican accent maybe, she didn't know how to pronounce Haitian Creole words and that kept me from enjoying the audio version. I had to finish on my Kindle.
