Unseen Worlds - Marilene Phipps

The extraordinary life of Marilene Phipps began in Haiti-the magical island of African Vodou gods who followed their devotees on the slave ships, and the world's first black republic-the singular cultural context and exotic milieu of the Caribbean, where hell and paradise can transfix us daily. In this powerful memoir, we enter the lives of a family who are both descendants of European aristocrats and African slaves.
