In 1980, 17-year-old Yrvin Lacroix is in a sailboat from Haiti bound for Miami, Florida in search of a better life. He leaves behind his beloved mother, his siblings, and R gine-his childhood sweetheart to whom he has made a promise to return.

In Miami, despite his precarious situation as a refugee, Yrvin joins Haitian exiles in the fight against the Duvalier dictatorship in Haiti as well as the struggle for refugee rights. He believes a win against the odds will help him shape the course of his life.

As time passes, Yrvin's love and passion for R gine begins to fade. Attending school is his main objective. On a rainy December day, he meets Michaela, a mixed-race girl of Dominican origin and fellow student at his school. They fall in love. But that love suffers a major setback when Yrvin learns of R gine's presence in Miami. Yrvin must now face a scorned R gine while staying focused in school and preserving his relationship with Michaela. Will he succeed?

Bittersweet Memories of Last Spring is an impressive novel of faith, love, and identity-the first installment of a sequel penned by critically-acclaimed author Ardain Isma.
