A collection of short stories. 15 women, immigrated to the United States from Zimbabwe. Different women, different experiences, different paths with a common cultural ground to some extent. From poverty, from good economic status, education, to lack thereof. Unique lives and experiences but all have faced, endured, or met some tragedy, struggle, and profound pain. Coming to America for that "better life and opportunity" only to be met with prejudices, sexism, and trauma of some kind. With the struggle also comes hope and endurance in each voice....in some of the voices. It's an intense and harrowing read. Beautifully written, such deep insight, an interesting prospective written solely of and for the voice of women. Sometimes it's uncomfortable to read and I think that's what makes this book so powerful. It's truth and experiences and a reality for so many.

Highly recommend.
