But they reinstituted slavery for the most vulnerable members of Haitian societythe children of the poorby using them as unpaid servants to the wealthy. These children wereand still are restavecs, a French term whose literal meaning of staying with disguises the unremitting labor, abuse, and denial of education that characterizes the childrens lives.

In this memoir, Jean-Robert Cadet recounts the harrowing story of his youth as a restavec, as well as his inspiring climb to middle-class American life.

He also details his subsequent life in the United States, where, despite American racism, he put himself through college and found success in the Army, in business, and finally in teaching.
