Because We Are: A Novel of Haiti - AbeBooks - Ted Oswald:By Mario Acevedo. What was the genesis for this novel? The spark for the story was a little girl. During my days there, a girl of ten—incredibly bright, mischievous, and sharp-tongued—would flit through our office. At times the story was very tragic and sad. At other times, it was deeply poignant. And there was humor as well.
