Book 3, Chapter 15
- The women have dinner together at Grandmè Ifé's house. Ifé takes Atie to task for going out at night to take reading lessons from Louise.
- Atie reads to them from her "book," which is a notebook she has written in. She chooses to read out the little poem that Sophie wrote on that last Mother's Day card before she left Haiti.
- That night, Sophie lies in bed with her daughter and thinks of Joseph. She remembers his tenderness during her pregnancy. She wants to tell Brigitte a story, like Atie used to.
- Atie returns late in the night from her reading lessons with Louise. She seems a bit drunk and Ifé takes her to task for it. Atie doesn't care one bit.
