Mouths Don't Speak
Katia D. Ulysse
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. 3,000 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 25 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. (From Akashic)
