This is the author's story about her life growing up in Haiti under the care of her uncle (her parents had immigrated to the US but weren't able to have her and her brother live with them at that point), her uncle's health issues, the extreme unrest in the country, and her dad's health issues which eventually led to his death. It is a sad book, but I enjoyed reading it, and I think that there is a lot to learn from it about immigration, politics, culture, healthcare, etc

Remarkable story-telling with an ending that makes even a cynic sad. I'm grateful for this deep look in to Haiti, and its relationship with the US. We have a long way to go....
