Inspired by the journey of author Eva Augustin Rumpf’s French ancestors, In Liberty’s Name is a story of conflict, passion, love, faith, and the search for meaning in an age of monarchs, slavery and revolution.
“By placing her ancestors among thousands of other refugees of the French and Haitian revolutions, Rumpf plunges her readers into the turmoil of this seminal period of Atlantic world history. The tale is a breathtaking story of historical importance.” –Nathalie Dessens, author of From Saint-Domingue to New Orleans: Migration and Influences
“In Liberty’s Name shines a personal light on a crucial and complex era in the history of the French West Indies and its little-known, underestimated impact on the young United States. –Augusta Elmwood, Director, Saint-Domingue Special Interest Group, Jefferson Genealogical Society, New Orleans, LA
“…engrossing and well-researched.” –Mary Gehman, President, Margaret Media, Inc., Donaldsonville, LA
“An historical novel with immediacy and impact” –Thomas Bonner, Jr., Professor Emeritus, Xavier University of Louisiana
