Monsoon Mansion

by Cinelle Barnes

Told with a lyrical, almost-dreamlike voice as intoxicating as the moonflowers and orchids that inhabit this world, Monsoon Mansion is a harrowing yet triumphant coming-of-age memoir exploring the dark, troubled waters of a family’s rise and fall from grace in the Philippines. It would take a young warrior to survive it.


Staff Reviews

Barnes' lyrical, beautifully written memoir of love, betrayal, and redemption. A heart-wrenching tale of riches to rags to "mercy in the mundane." You will love this book.
