Summary/Abstract: This article constitutes a comparative analysis of Louise Erdrich’s Love Medicine and Sandra Cisneros’ Caramelo with regard to the theme of family love used by the authoresses. In both works, the search for love in the family is related to the broader context of reconstructing ethnic community bonds and the analysis of metissage. What also seems important here is the motive of creating the identity in the ethnic and post‑ethnic perspective. Moreover, an attempt to reconstruct ethno‑history from the feminist perspective can serve as a common denominator of Love Medicine and Caramelo.
