Taste of Salt: a Story of Modern Haiti by Frances Temple
Book DescriptionDjo has a story: Once he was one of"Titid's boys, " a vital member of Father Jean-Bertrand Aristide's election team, fighting to overthrow military dictatorship in Haiti. Now he is barely alive, the victim of a political firebombing. Jeremie has a story: Convent-educated Jeremie can climb out of the slums of Port-au-Prince. But she is torn between her mother's hopes and her own wishes for herself... and for Haiti. Father Jean-Bertrand Aristide has a story: A dream of a new Haiti, one in which every person would have a decent life... a house with a roof... clean water to drink... a good plate of rice and beans every day... a field to work in. At Aristide's request, Djo tells his story to Jeremie - for Titid believes in the power of all of their stories to make change. As Jeremie listens to Djo, and to her heart, she knows that they will begin a new story, one that is all their own, together.
