Patsy by Nicole Dennis-Benn
From the acclaimed writer of Here Comes the Sun comes Nicole Dennis-Benn's second novel, Patsy. It's the story of a Jamaican woman who comes to America, where she hopes to reunite with a childhood friend. She is forced to leave behind her 5-year-old child, and as she struggles to find work and come to terms with the life her childhood friend has chosen, we also see what her daughter's life is like back home, forced to live with her father, whom she barely knows. Patsy is a thoughtful exploration of the immigrant experience, motherhood, and the choices women are forced to make.
