It is astonishing to see innocent individuals at the mercy of their grim circumstances. I am Going Where I Belong begins in Haiti where 14 year old Hans Leger is a member of a privileged family. A detour by the family chauffeur one day has Hans and his younger brother seeing a part of Haiti that had been hidden from them. Not long after this chance encounter, Hans' father is brutally gunned down during a violent coup d'etat, and he, his mother, and younger brother are forced to flee to Miami in search of peaceful refuge. Little does Hans know, though, that upon his arrival in the States, the real challenges of his life are only just beginning...
My goal, while writing this book, was to make the story believable. I wanted to give a voice to those who only know poverty and hunger. Also, behind that story there is another story in the book that many readers tend to miss. And the clues are right there in the book.
