Editor's Note

Origins and homecoming…

Twenty-five years after she left her homeland of Haiti, Jacqueline Florestant finds herself in turmoil, mourning the deaths of her parents while managing her life with her three-year-old daughter and ex-marine husband with PTSD. Her return to Haiti in search of closure is met with chaos and deception — it’s not the place she left over two decades ago. Ulysse thoughtfully tells the story of origins, homecoming, and the spaces in between.

Description

No one was prepared for the massive earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010, taking over a quarter-million lives, and leaving millions of others homeless. Three thousand miles away, Jacqueline Florestant mourns the presumed death of her parents, while her husband, a former US Marine and combat veteran, cares for their three-year-old daughter as he fights his own battles with acute PTSD.

Horrified and guilt-ridden, Jacqueline returns to Haiti in search of the proverbial “closure.” Unfortunately, the Haiti she left as a child twenty-five years earlier has disappeared. Her quest turns into a tornado of deception, desperation, and more death. So Jacqueline holds tightly to her daughter—the only one who must not die.
