Last Spring was Bittersweet Excerpts: Book 2

BOOK 2 – Synopsis – After his pregnant sweetheart, Michaela, bows to her parents’ pressure and is sent to Strasbourg, France, Yrvin feels betrayed and now reels in a web of sadness. His world has become so foggy that he can no longer see the major milestone he has just crossed in his immigrant journey. He is now a Barry University graduate, one of the most prestigious institutions in South Florida, with a bachelor’s degree in software engineering—with which he expects to land his dream job.

His mother and siblings still live in Haiti, but dwelling in the sorrow of a lost love does not allow him to face the crucial task that awaits him in the painstaking process to be reunited with them in America. A coup d’état in Haiti against a democratically elected president exacerbates his pain.

Down in darkness, the way forward looks bleak—until his sister Nana comes to the rescue, reminding him of all the sacrifices he has made thus far. Sacrifices which would be in vain unless he finds a way to beat back waves of uncertainties that threaten his sanity.

Heeding his sister’s call, Yrvin fights and wins against his loneliness but only to hit the great barrier through which he must break to conquer his own American dream. Despite the distance, the romantic betrayal, and the passage of time, Yrvin’s hope of reuniting someday with Michaela and being a father for his child never fades. Although the sorrow and grief of the early days no longer play the spooky ghost of his lonely nights.
