She wants to go to school and become a doctor with her best friend, Julie Marie.
But in their rural village outside Port-au-Prince, Haiti, many obstacles stand in Serafina’s way-- little money, never-ending chores, and Manman’s worries.
More powerful even than all of these are the heavy rains and the shaking earth that test Serafina’s resolve in ways she never dreamed.
At once heartbreaking and hopeful, this exquisitely crafted story will leave a lasting impression on your heart.
