"Anacaona" by Edwidge Danticat

Anacaona is an interesting book. Anacaona was the princess of an island of Xatagua in Haiti in the 1490's. She has a brother named Behechio, Baba and Bibi (mother and father). She moves to another island called Maguana when she marries Chief Canabo and becomes queen of that island. She trains to defeat the Killan and to protect her land from all harm. Later she has a baby . When some white men come to attack and take away their gold Anacaona, Canabo and their warriors defeat them. She defeated the white men to not only protect her land but to protect her baby. She meets a woman from Maguana and makes friends with her. When ever she needs help she is there for her. I highly recommend the book Anacaona to you.
I give this book five stars.
