From the PublisherKimberly Elise, O, The Oprah Magazine My oldest daughter and I...had the same reaction; we think it's the best book we've read in a long time....This story is compelling and powerful and meaningful and keeps you thinking.
Edwidge Danticat, author of Breath, Eyes, Memory and the Dew Breaker A wonderful first novel about the very complex ties that bind mothers and daughters in pain, the inevitable sacrifices that redefine love, passion, and commitment. asha bandele proves here that she can do it all: poetry, memoir, fiction. And much like Asha's other work, Daughter will move and transform you.
Essence This lyrical writer gives us another penetrating look at the endurance of love under harsh circumstances.
The Washington Post A provocative meditation...Bandele's imagery is spare and effective...the kind of storytelling that resurrects lost family history.
