A miracle baby is born on Easter Sunday, rumored to be the child of God. Award-winning Caribbean author Maryse Cond follows his journey in search of his origins and mission.

One Easter Sunday, Madame Ballandra puts her hands together and exclaims: "A miracle " Baby Pascal is strikingly beautiful, brown in complexion, with gray-green eyes like the sea. But where does he come from? Is he really the child of God? So goes the rumor, and many signs throughout his life will cause this theory to gain ground. From journey to journey and from one community to another, Pascal sets off in search of his origins, trying to understand the meaning of his mission. Will he be able to change the fate of humanity? And what will the New World Gospel reveal? For all its beauty, vivacity, humor, and power, Maryse Cond 's latest novel is above all a work of combat. Lucid and full of conviction, Cond attests that solidarity and love remain our most extraordinary and lifesaving forces.
