I CAN MAKE THIS PROMISE

by | Read by Kyla Garcia

Children Ages 8+ • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Kyla Garcia gives compelling voices to biracial 12-year-old Edie and her family in this heartbreaking contemporary story based on the author's own family history. Edie has always known that her Native American mother was taken from her family and adopted into a white family. But she knows nothing more about her family history until she discovers a secret box of letters in the attic. The letters reveal the hopes and dreams of another Edith, a Suquamish/Duwamish woman in the 1970s who Edie suspects is her namesake. Garcia deftly portrays Edie's friends and the adults in her life. She is strongest when portraying Edie herself. Edie's voice resonates with outraged shock when she discovers the painful truth about her mother's birth family.
