“Haiti. A poor country rich in courage, strength and love…”
This week’s giveaway is Island at the Edge of the World by Deborah Rodriguez – author of the international bestseller The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul. This new book is a captivating story set in the colourful but chaotic land of Haiti, as four very different women work together to find a lost child.
We meet Charlie, the rootless daughter of American missionaries, now working as a hairdresser in Northern California. But the repercussions of a traumatic childhood far from home have left her struggling for her way in life. Bea, Charlie’s eccentric grandmother, is convinced a reunion with her estranged mother will help Charlie heal.
Meanwhile, Lizbeth, a Texas widow who has never strayed too far from home, is on a daunting journey into the unknown – searching for the grandchild she never knew existed. And Senzey, a young Haitian mother dealing with a lifetime of love and loss, shows the other women the true meaning of bravery.
Together, these four different women venture through the teeming, colorful streets of Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince. Into the worlds of do-gooders doing more harm than good, Vodou practitioners, artists, activists, and everyday Haitian men and women determined to survive against all odds.
For Charlie, Bea, Lizbeth and Senzey, life will never be the same again . . .We have three copies of Island at the Edge of the World to give away. To be in to win, simply tell us in 25 words or fewer, something that you are currently searching for. Our favourite three answers will WIN a copy!
