This book actually highlights in deep the incredible accomplishment of the Haitian nation, being the only ever slave revolution leading to fighting off slavery and attaining independence through bloodshed. The slaves of Haiti played a great role in this after many years under French brutality.
In comparison to other Caribbean nations facing the same state of slavery, Haitian slaves were not allowed to trade internationally for more than 25 years until they agreed to pay huge debts to the French in 1827. Hence they actually had to repay their former ‘masters’ for the loss of the ‘masters’ ‘property.
From a succinct yet enlightening journey through the history of Haiti’s land, to the series of events that earned the nation independence at last, this book is a manifesto declaring the glory and power of this beautiful country. It further deliberates the promise of potential that Haiti holds today to overcome its bounds and reach for the success that is destined in its future.
The events take place in the United States. Arrogant smuggler Alan and a shy homeless guy called George are the main characters of the book.

Being very vigorous and determined, Lady Luck put the idea into action immediately. Which meant seismic changes in the lives of both main characters. And one of them didn’t like those changes at all…
So what happened to Alan and George? Well, the answer is in the book. As a bonus you will also find out what happened to Hitler in hell and what the Devil and the English Queen have in common.
The story is almost based on real events. Some of them already took place in real life. The best ones are about to happen. Who knows, maybe to you…
