The Girl Who Saved Yesterday
For the reader who loves powerful poetic language in the African-American storytelling tradition!
When the girl, Silence, is sent by the trees to save Yesterday, she doesn’t know what her task is, only that it is important. Returning to the village that cast her out, Silence recognizes her purpose: to join the dead with the living in a powerful act that celebrates their memory. Silence rescues both the living villagers and their forgotten ancestors by respecting the bond between them.
