The Promised Land: A Tale of a pair of twins
By: Jacques F. Felix
About the Book
The Promised Land details the current political and economic situation of author Jacques F. Felix’s native country, Haiti. It shows how the Haitian youth are trying to leave the country by any means necessary in search for a better life elsewhere, most notably the United States and South America. Many emigrants from the world over seek to enter the United States by any means necessary, the proverbial Promised Land. The harrowing tale hopes to change the viewpoints of those who frown upon immigration.
