It wasn’t easy finding a title that starts with the letter D in my collection of books. In the end, I found two, Dust by Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor was one of them. I decided to go with Daughters of the Stone by Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa, which is on my TBR for this year, since I’ll be focusing on reading what’s on my shelves. This was Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa’s debut novel published in 2009 and is apparently her only novel to date. Daughters of Stone follows five generations of Afro-Puerto Rican women through their physical and spiritual journey, starting in the 1880s. Check out the video below where Llanos-Figueroa reads an except from her novel and talks about how and why she wrote it.
