Bladensburg, MD, September 4, 2011 – About three years ago, author Louis N. Jones read an article about the struggles of the people of the Republic of Haiti. Descriptions of the country as one of the poorest in the Western Hemisphere prompted Jones to learn more about Haiti and the struggles of its people. He watched documentaries on Haiti, talked to Haitian immigrants, and read history books to better understand how this country’s past related to its present. His findings inspired him to write a Christian fiction focusing on a Haitian citizen and her struggle to break free from her oppressive existence. He started writing the novel, The Colors Will Change in October 2009.

In January 2010, the country was struck by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated Port-Au-Prince. When Jones heard about it, he partnered with his pastor to dedicate an entire Sunday church service to talking about the disaster and praying for the people of Haiti. A church fund was set up to help a children’s mission in Haiti recover from the disaster. However, Jones decided to postpone writing the remaining ¼ of The Colors Will Change, as he didn’t want to appear as if he was profiteering from the earthquake. It was simply too soon.

Now, one year and eight months after the earthquake, Haiti is still reeling from the earthquake and subsequent challenges. However, the indomitable spirit of the people continues to inspire and motivate people all over the world. It is that indomitable spirit that The Colors Will Change (November 2011) celebrates and dramatizes through its main character, Carline, a young woman whose brother, mother and father are killed through a series of tragedies in pre-earthquake Haiti. Trying to survive on her own, she resorts to prostitution. Her first client, a businessman from America, exposes her to a major drug deal, and she is targeted for murder. While hiding from her pursuers, she unwittingly meets Myles, an up-and-coming U.S. senator who offers to help her by immigrating her to the United States. Carline reluctantly agrees, but finds that the danger in Haiti is not that easy to outrun. In addition, Myles, who is struggling in his marriage and trying to make his mark as a freshman senator, finds that his decision to bring Carline to the States has its pitfalls and dangers for him as well. Several hundred miles away in Harrisonburg, Virginia, a Mennonite man finds himself estranged from his father due to his connection to Haiti. They all face challenges to their faith in God and risk their integrity and their lives as the three broken individuals try to make themselves whole.
