Saturday Comes: A Novel of Love and Vodou
Cat #: BK-SATCO
Co-narrated by the Baron Samedi, Vodou Spirit of Death, Saturday Comes is an atmospheric tale of love and hate; of Haiti’s long-smoldering societal and class conflicts; of the magic that reigns over the everyday lives of Haitian natives; and of the unseen forces that draw human beings together.
Enter a World of Passion, Murder, and Vodou!
It is a cold, wet, living nightmare when 12-year-old Maya St. Fleur finds herself on a makeshift boat bulging with other Haitians fleeing their island for a better life in the United States.
The one responsible for her forced departure from the country and family she loves is Henri Chenet: sexual predator, blackmailer — and father of the boy who makes her heart beat with young love!
Yet filled with hatred and anger, she vows, one day, to kill the son he cherishes above all else. Will she be able to follow through with her dark plan?
