In Esperanza Cintron's Shades, a collection of short stories examines the life of two women in Detroit. Belle and Margaret and their children face adversities in their everyday lives.
These stories are intuitively written, painting a vivid, compelling picture of family, love, self-acceptance, sexuality, infidelity, colorism, harassment, drug abuse and loss. Cintron's use of the vernacular lends even more authenticity to each character's narrative allowing the reader the chance to relate.
