Image of item
Book

First US edition.

"From award-winning author Myriam J. A. Chancy comes an extraordinary and enduring story of two families forever joined by country-and by long-held secrets-and two girls with a bond that refuses to be broken. In 1940s' Port-au-Prince, Gertie and Sisi become fast childhood friends, despite being on opposite ends of the social and economic ladder. As young girls, they build their unlikely friendship-until a deathbed revelation ripples through their families and tears them apart. After Fran├žois Duvalier's rule turns deadly in the 1950s, Sisi moves to Paris, while Gertie marries into a wealthy Dominican family. Across decades and continents, through personal successes and failures, they are parted and reunited, slowly learning the truth of their singular relationship. Finally, six decades later, with both women in the United States, a sudden phone call brings them back together once more to reckon with and forgive the past. Told with power and frankness, Village Weavers confronts the silences around class, race, and nationality; charts the moments when lives are irrevocably forced apart; and envisions two girls-connected their entire lives-who try to break inherited cycles of mistrust and find ways back into each other's hearts"--
