Wiss Auguste was born and raised in Jacmel, a gorgeous small town located on the southernmost coast of Haiti. He began writing acrostic love poems at the age of twelve. His writing, unfortunately, hit a snag when he migrated to the United States at the age of twenty-one. He was no longer an idealistic teenager; he was a displaced young adult struggling to make life make sense. He put all self-fulfilling and creative activities on the back burner as he worked odd jobs and pursued a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice.

After the passing of his father, Wiss turned back to poetry to find himself and escape the burden of grief. He reconnected with his creative side, and his craft allowed him to vent freely. He hid behind his poems to show his weaknesses to the world without compromising his pride.

Wiss considers himself naturally empathetic, and his empathy fuels his writing. His poetry usually touches on mindfulness, self-expression, romantic love, self-love, growth, and the complexity of the human character. He has developed a hybrid poetic style encompassing elements from the nineteenth century’s Romanticism and Symbolism. He credits the soothing musicality of his poems to his polyglot background. Unsurprisingly, his favorite poets are Paul Verlaine, Coriolan Ardouin, Arthur Rimbaud, William Wordsworth, Pablo Neruda, Emily Bront&euml;, and Oswald Durand.

I have read this book in less than 24 hours. An easy book to read despite the delicate themes developed in the story. We get attached very quickly to the main character and we evolve with Hope. A book full of understanding towards the suffering of women but above all a testimony of their resilience, strength and endurance. Thank you !
