The Farming of Bones, by Edwidge Danticat

About The Framing of Bones

The Farming of Bones is a powerful story of love and survival that follows Amabelle, a young Haitian woman living in the Dominican Republic in 1937. Her harrowing experience fleeing the wave of genocidal violence targeting Haitian workers provides historical context for the crisis of forced deportation and violence experienced by Dominicans of Haitian descent today.
