Part II of Benson’s Haitian Revolution trilogy Deux Femmes on the Edge de la Revolution, Tigress of San Domingue continues the journey of Cécile, an enslaved African healer turned rebel soldier, and Valentine, a French expat caught between two worlds. As Toussaint L’Ouverture and Jean-Jacques Dessalines continue the fight for freedom and equality, Cécile, rises up the military ranks. Driven by a dangerous combination of trauma and ambition, she must choose between her obligation to family, and their allegiance to the new nation rising from the ashes.
