In Manitoba, two Metis sisters, April and Cheryl grow up separately – having been removed from their Aboriginal community and placed in the foster care system. Raintree provides a disturbing look into the cultural trauma of one Aboriginal family, and the intricate process of forming an identity when it has been stolen.

Perfect for:


• Readers interested in learning more about Canada’s Metis community.
• Anyone who can handle some seriously disturbing scenes.
• Those who yearn for an authentic read on identity and the dark side of the foster care system in Canada.
