About This Item
Marjorie CelonaâÈçs internationally acclaimed debut, longlisted for the Giller Prize, chronicles a wise-beyond-her-years child abandoned as a newborn on the doorstep of the local YMCA. Growing up in foster homes, Shannon chooses to define life on her own terms, but she never stops wondering why she was abandoned. Brilliantly interwoven with ShannonâÈçs story is the tale of her mother, Yula, a girl herself who is facing a desperate fate in the hours and days leading up to ShannonâÈçs birth. As past and present converge, CelonaâÈçs beautiful novel tells an unforgettable story of identity, inheritance, and, ultimately, forgiveness.
