Product description

Product Description

The poignant tale of a woman who discovers the fragility of life and the strength of a familys love, from an author praised by Toni Morrison for searing, expertly imagined scenes.

Known for bringing to life a host of endearing characters who reveal tender truths about humanity, Bernice L. McFadden now turns her storytelling talents to an unforgettable and deeply troubled woman named Camilla.

Unfolding in a progression of stirring and powerful chapters, Camillas Roses presents a life haunted by the past. Camillas childhood was immersed in chaos and love, and steeped in the myth of perfection. As an adult, she never looked back, refusing to acknowledge the people and places that had scarred her so many years ago. But a legacy of cancer proves inescapable, forcing Camilla to embrace the pastno matter how painful it may beand to salvage what is left of her love in order to save her daughter. As Camilla discovers the bittersweet limitations of motherhood and reconciliation, she also awakens an inspiring message about the mortality issues we all must face.

Shortlisted for the Hurston/Wright Foundation Legacy Award and winner of two Black Writers Alliance Gold Pen Awards as well as an Honor Award from the American Library Association, McFadden lives in her native Brooklyn, New York.
