Deceitful Survival by LC Lee
In a time when there were few options for a woman, the main character Andrée finds the courage to grow as a person and the strength to survive as a strong woman. Through a series of life-threatening ordeals, Andrée’s journey begins when she is abandoned by her family, with no other option she becomes a nun, and is assigned to a mission in Haiti. She soon has to flee for her life in order to survive a revolution between the Vodun and French farmers.
With a priest, René, she finds refuge in the mountains in a Taíno Indian village, and without the Church to define her role, she falls in love with the rebel priest. When their presence endangers the tribe, they escape Haiti by boarding a ship to Cuba. It is the beginning of several intriguing deceptions in the story, when they abandon their positions in the Church and travel as husband and wife.
From The Author: I started writing this story to expose the harm that Christopher Columbus and his Spanish benefactors had caused to the isle of Haiti, as it was called before their arrival.
My main character Andrée took over the book and it became a story about her life and the struggles of young women in the 19th century.
Andrée had pulled the story along and made surprising choices. This novel was completed with the help of over a dozen of my female friends, from editors to beta readers they all agree Andrée’s story is compelling.
