Publisher Description

From the national bestselling author of Brother, I’m Dying and The Dew Breaker: a “fiercely beautiful” novel (Los Angeles Times) that brings us deep into the intertwined lives of a small seaside town where a little girl, the daughter of a fisherman, has gone missing.

Just as her father makes the wrenching decision to send her away for a chance at a better life, Claire Limyè Lanmè—Claire of the Sea Light—suddenly disappears. As the people of the Haitian seaside community of Ville Rose search for her, painful secrets, haunting memories, and startling truths are unearthed. In this stunning novel about intertwined lives, Edwidge Danticat crafts a tightly woven, breathtaking tapestry that explores the mysterious bonds we share—with the natural world and with one another.

Go by myself

Hiking on my way and you know your heart soon.

It was ok

It was a quick read, lots of details to paint the picture of the area and it's people. I was bored a lot of the time, but I kept reading because it was this month's book club choice and I thought it would all come together in some amazing twist at the end. It didn't.

That was a waste...

Of my time and money.
