Through a chanceMoreParis, 1792. When Jean-Louis Aubert narrowly escapes death in the bloody streets of Paris during the French Revolution, he abandons his study for the priesthood and seeks a safe haven in the French Caribbean colony of Saint-Domingue. Through a chance meeting with wealthy silk merchant and plantation owner Michel Saunier and his family, Jean finds work and romance on the steamy tropical island, where black slaves are forced to labor inhumanely in the sugarcane fields.

For young Marie Josephine Saunier, her anticipated adventure on the island turns to tragedy and loss, as the slaves quest for freedom erupts in a terrifying rebellion. The colony is thrust into a war of race and revenge that ends with the formation of a new nation, Haiti. Estranged by the war and their own inner conflicts, Jean and Marie escape separately to nearby Cuba.

But their refuge in the Spanish colony is short-lived. Forced into exile again, they join thousands of French emigres sailing to the new American city of New Orleans. Inspired by a true story and sweeping through four countries and two decades, this historical novel is peopled with figures such as King Louis XVI and Toussaint Louverture, the former slave known as Haitis liberator. In Libertys Name brings to life the events of a tumultuous period whose impact was felt worldwide and whose influence remains today.
