    When Haitians tell a story, they say 'Krik?' and the eager listeners answer 'Krak!' In Krik? Krak! In her second novel, Edwidge Danticat establishes herself as the latest heir to that narrative tradition with nine stories that encompass both the cruelties and the high ideals of Haitian life. They tell of women who continue loving behind prison walls and in the face of unfathomable loss; of a people who resist the brutality of their rulers through the powers of imagination. The result is a collection that outrages, saddens, and transports the reader with its sheer beauty.

    It is 1937, a dangerous year in the Dominican Republic, where Haitian laborers are useful, rather than welcome; tolerated, but not trusted. Amabelle, a young Haitian woman orphaned at the age of eight, is a faithful servant to the young wife of an army colonel, living in the household where the two women grew up together. Amabelle's lover Sebastien is an itinerant sugarcane cutter, a handsome man despite the scars on his face, the calluses on his hands.There are rumors that in other towns Haitians are being persecuted, even killed, but there are always rumors. Amabelle longs to become Sebastien's wife, to return with him to Haiti at the end of the cane season and begin a new life. Instead, the nationalist madness erupts, and terror engulfs them.A devastating and beautiful novel The Farming of Bones is about love, dignity, pain, and memory, and about that most basic of hopes when all other hope is lost: to endure.
