Alana lives in Courbevoie when she inherits a slave cabin in Guadeloupe. A love story against a backdrop of the sound of fetters and the supernatural. History, Guadeloupe's society, the past, the present and love form an exotic cocktail that two characters against all odds drink to the dregs. How can we believe in the apparition of spirits nowadays ? How can we imagine that two beings separated by their colonial past can find love and overcome atavism? The purifying fire fills their souls and consume the novel's pages. “I chose a light style to treat challenging subjects such as slavery, social malaise, the supernatural and religion. Reading Flames of the Past is edifying and entertaining at once, offering a pleasant escape from reality.”
