A fictional account of Marie Laveau. Well worth the wait & read. Ms. Rhodes has done a most excellent novel of an intense journey (although fictional) account of Ms. Laveau's life . I couldn't put the book down & longed for more at the end. Very good novel. Well, Well worth the wait. 5 stars

New Orleans is the mid nineteenth century: a potent mix of whites, Creoles, free blacks, and African slaves, a city pulsing with crowds, commerce, and an undercurrent of secret power. The source of this power is the voodoo religion, and its Queen is Marie Laveau, the notorious voodooienne, worshipped and feared by blacks and whites alike.
