Today I finished a really remarkable book called Her Mother's Mother's Mother and Her Daughters by Maria José Silveira. It chronicles 500 years of colonization in Brazil through the matrilineal descendants of a young indigenous girl born the year the Portuguese arrive on the coast. The story speaks with clarity and power about the lives of these women in a burgeoning and often cruel world. Despite the rawness, though, this book is a celebration of remembrance. Highly highly recommend.
