Eye of the Beholder
This short book is about the Island of Hispaniola which is shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti. It delves into the past before the countries were independent of their colonizers up until their present situations and tries to explain why two countries who share the same Island and essentially the same roots; are so different culturally, linguistically and in appearance. It seeks to point out these differences and atrocities throughout time so that each country can be viewed for what it truly is rather than what each country believes itself to be. In doing so, perhaps tensions between the two countries will eventually dwindle and the entire Island can prosper for what it is. Beautiful.
