From the Publisher
"Augustave is a talented writer who brings her varied characters to life and shows readers parts of the world that few of us have experienced. Her book is an excellent anecdote to books about immigration that, intentionally or not, present the western world as the favored or inevitable destination...I strongly recommend The Roving Tree to all those who are interested in Haiti, Zaire, and African traditions more generally."
--Me, You, and Books
"The beauty of this book lies in its simplicity. An engaging read that packs a powerful punch."
--Historical Novel Review
"The Roving Tree is Elsie Augustave's debut novel, and I can't wait to see what she writes next. Augustave writes beautifully and it's obvious that she cares a lot about the subject matter she chooses. I definitely recommend The Roving Tree to anyone who likes reading literary fiction and/or to anyone who is interested in the ideas and history portrayed in the book."
