Best-selling, American Book Award-winning author Edwidge Danticat-a two-time selectee of Oprah's Book Club-delivers a powerful tale of facing the past and making the decisions and sacrifices that shape the future. In Haiti during the dictatorial 1960s, the man known as the "dew breaker" was a torturer. Now a fixture in Brooklyn, he maintains a quiet life as a husband and father. His terrible deeds lie buried. As we meet his family, neighbors, and even his victims, his story becomes one of rebellion and reconciliation.
