Amabelle, a young Haitian woman orphaned at the age of eight, is a faithful servant to the young wife of an army colonel, living in the household where the two women grew up together. Amabelles lover Sebastien is an itinerant sugarcane cutter, a handsome man despite the scars on his face, the calluses on his hands.There are rumors that in other towns Haitians are being persecuted, even killed, but there are always rumors.

Amabelle longs to become Sebastiens wife, to return with him to Haiti at the end of the cane season and begin a new life. Instead, the nationalist madness erupts, and terror engulfs them.A devastating and beautiful novel The Farming of Bones is about love, dignity, pain, and memory, and about that most basic of hopes when all other hope is lost: to endure.
