A beheaded teenage cow thief, a Vodou love powder, counterfeit U.S. currency, and a lougarou who steals souls during the night. These are the stories of Julie Peters Akey’s journeys through Haiti, told through her eyes and experiences, both as a soldier during Haiti’s tumultuous years, and later as a volunteer after the earthquake. Julie gives an honest portrayal of all that is Haiti: foreign military intervention, natural disasters, a cholera epidemic, dictatorships, coups, and Vodou. In doing so, she artfully shares the surprising beauty, passion, and love found throughout the country. Despite all the misery, she shows how one person really can make a difference in the world.
