"Claire of the Sea Light reads like the work of a writer eager to create another world...A sense of the possibilities is tangible, where Danticat delves into parenting, revenge, reconciliation and remorse.  Claire Limyè Lanmè is the daughter of a widower who is mulling whether or not to let someone else raise his daughter.  In this small town, other mothers and fathers are working through reconciling their feelings about parenthood while readers experience a day in her life. Simultaneously, Danticat masterfully weaves in necessary parts of the past.” —Joshunda Sanders, Kirkus
