The story of a New Orleans family’s ascent from slavery to freedom, paying tribute to their fearlessness and inherited magic that fixes the present, sees into the future, and calls out from the past.

In alternating chapters, two women tell their haunting, frightening, and ultimately uplifting stories, paying tribute to their fearlessness and family magic. This powerful and deeply personal novel alternates as each woman learns the boundaries of what she can endure amidst racial injustice. At the intriguing crossroads of the seen and the unseen lies a weave among five generations of women.
