Suzette is taken aback, because to her knowledge her mother has never been outside of Brooklyn. Her mother has never even seen the office building where Suzette works, and she is also afraid of taking the subway.

Shocked and a bit worried, Suzette decides to follow her mother as she walks the streets. As Suzette tails her mother, her mind is filled with memorable quotes of things her mother has told her in the past. Suzette is so preoccupied with following her mother that she almost overtakes her. Her mother stops to buy a can of soda and to look at a display of African-print dresses. Suzette can tell her mother is thinking about buying her one, and mentally begs her mother not to, because she would just give it to Goodwill.

The final stop is the park. They watch the other kids at the park play while the boy reads a comic book. After an hour passes, the woman returns, her workout completed.

She takes one last look at her mother before hopping into a taxi. In the cab, Suzette realizes that her mother never went to any of her Parent-Teacher Association meetings when she was in school.

What are they going to tell me? Some of our characters have finally been successful in their quest to leave Haitian shores, and have arrived in the heart of America. Or have they really?

She interacts easily with vendors and has no problem being with the child she babysits and his mother. She also shows the strength of the mother-daughter bond. This love is revealed in nonlinear ways. As the penultimate story in the Krik? Its unique structure allows the reader to view snapshots from the lives of Haitian women in their new environment.

Perhaps a more complete picture will be offered in the last story.

Night Women

Tojarr Krik? I was given the impression from this quote that just as the mother is lying to the son about her nighttime activities in order to try and maintain his happiness and sense of hope, her son is lying to his mother about believing her in order to help her maintain her sense of being a good mother and her hope for a better future. Based on the bible, as a woman you are the one to take care of the house; cooking, cleaning, loving, etc. Danticat uses both visibility and multiplicity in a tactful use of imagery, crafting a provocative use of the stars to communicate to her readers on several levels.
