Book Covers
Freeman elucidates not only the complexities of friendship, but the sanctity of motherhood and the pervasiveness of loss, how political corruption and the violence it breeds affects women uniquely. A heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting novel that celebrates our ability to transcend tragedy.— Rishi Reddi, author of Karma and Other Stories and winner of the 2008 PEN/L.L. Winship Award
