Claire of the Sea Light is an enchanting child born into love and tragedy in a seaside town in Haiti. Claire's mother died in childbirth, and on each of her birthdays her father, Nozias, takes her to visit her mother's grave. Nozias wonders if he should give away his young daughter to a local shopkeeper who lost a child of her own, so he can give her a better life. But on the night of Claire's 7th birthday, when he makes the wrenching decision to do so, she disappears.
