Rising From The Rubble by Jean-Maurice Duval, Nadine Duval

In Rising from the Rubble, the reader is infused into the fateful day of January 12th 2010 and its aftermath.The story focuses on the earthquake's devastation and the story of one man's struggles and his recovery.

Dr. Duval, an accomplished professional and a consummate family man achieved all of his dreams and was very pleased of all of his intellectual and material acquisitions. Dr. Duval experienced pain and loss along with his nation. This memoir is a saga that recounts the events surrounding a man's near-death experience, agony and eventual triumph over adversity. The sequence of events depicted in the story reminds of a movie thriller more than a natural unfolding of spectacular rescues.

The seemingly impossible but true events were only possible because of the insight of the author as a physician and the wonderful people around him. More than a survival story, Rising from the Rubble is a poignant tale of friendship and generosity.

During my second year in medical school, during a time when the political climate was very dangerous in Haiti, I became obsessed with finding solutions for my country's socio- economic distress. After prolonged brainstorming, I wrote this book which detailed a candid plan for the development of Haiti and the improvement of the people's welfare.
