Very emotional and powerfull story about growing up in Scarbourough's immigrant community. By going back and forth in time, this novels tells a story about migrants frim Trinidad to Canada and their sens of belonging. Loved it!

A very poignant book, especially in the last year due to the finding of unmarked graves of residential school students in several locations. It‘s a book I need to purchase and mark up. Lots of warnings for this book, especially for sexual abuse. #letteri #alphabetgame

Bleak and heart breaking this book also shows the resilience of women as they support each other and their families in the face of prejudice, violence, and poverty. I thought this book was fantastic.

Cathythoughts Yes fantastic 👍🏻♥️ 3mo

A beautifully written generational saga dealing with pain, love, forgiveness, family and food. How she wrote three such deep characters, that go through so much, that felt so real is mindblowing! So well written, Ekwuyasi offers such a wonderfully moving and beautiful story, about trauma, spiritualism, food, mothering, sisterhood, queerness and love. The prose are vivid and strong. I loved it so much! Can't reccomend it enought! #canlit
