HAITI: The Tumultuous History by Philippe Girard


"everything is more complicated than you think"  And the history of a nation is even more!  I read this book a few years ago and it was an important part of my journey to understanding the story of this land that we so deeply love. History is a collection of facts, memories, individual perspectives and stories.  Many books have been written about the amazing country Haiti. This is but one. I don't  agree entirely on all it says, but it gives one writer's perspective that is useful for a better understanding of the narrative still being written today of Haiti. If you read it i would love to know your thoughts!    Kathy Brooks
