Item Description...
This is an account of one woman's childhood experiences under the Duvalier dictatorship shortly before leaving her native Haiti in 1962, at ten years old, and residing in Africa, Europe, and in the United States. The book chronicles the uprooting of a middleclass Haitian family from its home. It follows the struggles of the initial group of refugees who escape from the events that have conspired to dismantle a country and continue to push even more of its people into exile. This is also an immigrant's story of survival in a racist society and one woman's personal fight against the frustrations faced by Blacks in the United States. At the age of twenty-eight years old, the author becomes a born again Christian. As her life with its personal disappointments unfolds in the Promise land of America, she finds the assurance, that God's love transcends the barriers of culture and racism. Marie-Solange Benedict is a native of Haiti who first found refuge in 1962 in Liberia West Africa, attended Boarding School in England, and immigrated to the United States in 1968. She graduated from The Methodist Hospital of Brooklyn School of Nursing in New York, holds a B.A. in Political Science from Queens College, City University of New York, and a J.D. from John Marshall Law School, Atlanta, Georgia. She works and writes in South Florida where she lives with her family.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A young woman with great conviction and courage!  May 19, 2008
Child of A Mountainous Land by Marie-Solange Benedict is an incredible story of life as a Haitian refugee. With what would have been a stellar childhood in the upper class of most free societies, the author describes in abundant detail the influence of government, power and control over its citizens and overall family positions in life. Clearly Benedict accumulated information over many years to describe past events so thoroughly including detailed accounts of situations and other Haitian families to document eloquently an otherwise disturbing past. It's also of great interest in seeing how religion, race and culture plays out in Haiti, the United States and Europe from a young woman with great conviction and courage!
