Oshun’s Daughters: The Search for Womanhood in the Americas, by Vanessa K. Valdés

Publication Date: 
April 2016

This book’s strength lies in part in the fact that two genres are studied from different geographical areas and in three different linguistic forms — English, Spanish, and Portuguese. The structural design of being divided into four solid chapters which work together to present a comprehensive study of the theme is also a very useful one. This book is a good study of the representation of African diasporic religions in the creative works of several woman writers. It will make a significant contribution to the study of writing by women of different racial backgrounds whose works are linked by the religious systems about which they write in different spaces in the Caribbean, Brazil, and the USA.
