The saga continues! A disturbing letter from her great-aunts has brought Cheney to their indigo plantation outside of New Orleans, but what she and Shiloh discover is much more serious and dangerous than they imagined. A West Indies cult has begun performing rituals and rites just across the bayou from the plantation, and warnings appear--Cheney's aunts are on "spirit ground" and they must leave.
When the aunts refuse, some of the servants and sharecroppers begin to suffer from a mysterious illness, and the new indigo crop fails.
Cheney and Shiloh and the rest of the family and friends must find out why the group is suddenly so interested in the plantation. But every attempt to protect Cheney's great-aunts only leads to increasing hostility. They all may be in grave danger.
• The author is providing fascinating new Author Notes at the beginning of each story, adding to the rewarding reading experience.
Lynn Morris, daughter of popular historical novelist Gilbert Morris, is a recognized and talented writer in her own right. The first novel in this eight-book series was originally published in 1994, and it was an immediate bestseller (nearly half-a million combined sales of the eight novels in the series). The author's careful background explorations of the historical setting, the medical customs of the late 1800s, and the training institutions finally being opened to women, make for intriguing plots and dramatic tensions for the memorable character of Cheney Duvall.
Lynn has a grown daughter and lives near her parents in Alabama.
