Daughters of Silence, etc.

My debut novel Daughters of Silence, set in Toronto and Addis Ababa, tells the story of Dessie, a bereaved and newly single Ethiopian-Canadian woman, and her struggle to come to terms with her fractured family and her own traumatic childhood. Publication is scheduled by Goose Lane Editions for Fall 2019.
