When, over the course of his thirty-three years, did he lose his faith in God? Turning back seems impossible, until his sister announces shes getting married in the familys home country of Haiti, in Le Cap. Its the perfect opportunity for Lebon to clear his head. The only problem is that nothing is clear in Haiti.The day after his sisters wedding, Le Cap explodes in violent uprising. Someone has to pay, and the authorities wish it could be Cergo-a half-crazed witch doctor whose rage incites the unrest to grow. Lebon does his best to lay low. He has been spending a lot of time with Simone, a young woman employed to watch over Lebon during his time on home soil.Lebon develops a fondness for Simone, but has no idea that Cergo has intentions to make her his wife.

Yet, in the midst of turmoil, Lebon finds unexpected enlightenment on the Haitian beach, thanks to an unlikely source.
