Elsie's BusinessUnknown - 2006
Rebuilding her life in a different town, the taciturn Elsie finds modest comfort among the white people who employ and befriend her. This book weaves the story of a ravaged woman into the traditional tales of her people to create a vivid sense of communities bound by storytelling and understanding and sundered by ignorance and silence.
