By the Light of My Father's Smile

by Alice Walker
£8.99   paperback  Orion (2005)

By the Light of My Father A family goes to the remote sierras of Mexico - the writer-to-be Susannah; her sister Magdalena; their father and mother. There, amid a people called the Mundo, they begin an encounter that will change them for ever.
This is also the story of a father's spirit, of a man watching over his two daughters as they grow and change, becoming their unique selves.
A deeply sensual novel, By the Light of My Father's Smile explores the richness of female sexuality as a celebration of life, affirming the belief 'that love is both timeless and beyond.'

"Alice Walker in this, the most beautiful, the most compassionate, the most sensuous of novels, has created a materpiece. Flawless."
(The Times)
