ENICE: Tale of a multifaceted life
Enice Toussaint   (More from this author)
Autobiography
 
Translated for a new world to discover and praised in the Haitian communities for the honest portrayal of the biased relationship between men and women in her culture, Enice openly offers testament to the horrors Haitian women succumb to from childhood to marriage. Born into a prominent family, the death of her parents at the tender age of ten forces Enice into an adulthood few can imagine. Solace comes in the form of her sister's at the convent, where Enice finds a tiny spark of hope for a better life. When Tony, a controlling womanizer, asks for her hand in marriage, she must comply, further engaging a life of cultural difficulty she cannot escape. A move to Montreal offers new expectations along with the arrival of true love, but Enice must still break free of a past that cannot be forgotten in order to find personal freedom. Originally published by the author's publishing company, Les Editions Nouveau Siècle, the amazing account of Enice Toussaint's 'twelve lives' from Haiti to New York and Montreal delves into personal journals written from 1989 to 1999 and reveals the metamorphosis of one Haitian woman who dares to take control of life in a world of inequality.
