Season of Mist

Donald Dixon, writing as Mac Donald Dixon

Season of Mist salutes the triumph of the human spirit over adversity. This historical novel begins during the French Revolution in the late 1700s on the tiny Caribbean Island of Saint Lucia.

After suffering severe deprivation, a band of revolutionaries using guerrilla tactics are able to rout the remnants of Napoleon’s grand army, as well as some of Britain’s best foot soldiers.

Against the backdrop of slavery, the revolutionaries – though starving and in rags – take the battle directly to their enemies, moving heaven and earth to repudiate their wretched living conditions.

Led by a Black woman named Madlienne Des Voeux — her army, a mixture of Blacks, Mulattoes, and some poor Frenchmen – are all fighting for freedom from slavery against Royalist, British, and French planters.

Forty years will pass before Madlienne can finally confront the leader of those who killed her family and escaped so many years ago. Bent on a lifelong quest for vengeance, will she finally get the justice she has waited so long to realize?

About the Author

Born and raised on Saint Lucia, Mac Donald Dixon writes full-time since retiring in 2013 as a trade consultant with the island’s government. “As an amateur historian, I have always wanted author Dixon photo.jpgto see my history through the eyes of my people, and not the colonizer’s or oppressor’s. Season of Mist is one such offering.” He also wishes to “dispel preconceived notions of history and historical events as told by our colonizers, and try to see them in a new light. Millions were taken from their homes in Africa, India, China, and Ireland, and brought to these islands against their will. Their descendents know their stories and must tell the world the truth.”
