In this compelling tale from the National Book Award-nominated collection, acclaimed author Edwidge Danticat explores the repercussions of the bloody Parsley Massacre. Just before Josephine was born, her mother swam from the Dominican Republic across a blood-filled river to Haiti. Many years later, Josephine visits her mother-who is imprisoned as a witch-bringing food and a Virgin Mary statue to which her mother is deeply attached.
