 : Long after the Haitians had abandoned their island to social violence and natural disasters, they had been replaced by an unknown people, the Promisorians, who had been secretly living in the interior desert land of Haiti. An anthropologist of Haitian ancestry travels to the island in order to study the origin of the Promisorians, their peculiar culture and their relation, if any, to the Haitians who lived there many generations before. He finds a people without history and religion, highly contemptible of the extinct Haitian society and culture, yet actively involved in the archaeological excavation of the past. This past is revealed to them in a mysterious vision and in documents that have been discovered, exposing a direct connection to the Haitians. They zealously reject those findings and, instead, offer as a subterfuge a diary kept by a young Haitian, showing a totally different situation. In the Diary, the Haitians in diaspora are exiled in Haiti to face a hostile people and government. They had become refugees in the land of their ancestors. They successfully fight back, take control, and establish order and prosperity on the island. Bewildered by so many contradictions, the archaeologist settles for a good life in the company of the beautiful women with whom he had been collaborating. The search for historical truth around the world had, anyway, become obsolete in a century where History was created at will by electronic means. Like the Haitian painters of paradise islands in the eighties who saw in their decomposed environment the incarnation of their catastrophic historical heritage, the author, too, seeks to recreate his lost Haiti from within.
