My Mother's House [Hardcover]

by Momplaisir, Francesca

  • (0)

"A literary thriller about the complex underbelly of the immigrant American dream--the triumphs and failure, mundane and aberrant--and the dangerous ripple effect one person's damages can have on the lives of others, all told by an unexpected narrator: ahouse that has held unspeakable horrors. When Lucien flees Haiti with his wife, Marie-Ange, and their three children to New York City's South Ozone Park, he does so in the hopes of finding reinvention, wealth, and comfort. He buys a rundown house in a community that is quickly changing from one filled with Italian mobsters to one attracting American Dream seekers like himself, and begins life anew. Lucien and Marie-Ange call their home La Kaye, "my mother's house," and it becomes a center for their fellow immigrants to find peace, a good meal, and legal help. But as a severely emotionally damaged man emigrating from a country whose evils he knows to one whose evils he doesn't, Lucien soon falls back into his worst habits and impulses, with his new house acting as the backdrop for his lasciviousness. What Lucien can't even begin to fathom is that La Kaye is always watching and passing judgement, and everything comes to a head on the day that it decides to stop the sins inside. But La Kaye doesn't even know the darkest secrets held within its walls, and only after it has set itself aflame does it hear the frightened whispers that will reveal Lucien's ultimate evil" -- Provided by publisher.
