A dazzling debut novel that sweeps across eras and generations to tell the story of a mother and daughter with a shared talent for healing—and the conjuring of curses.

 

The intimate bonds and transgressions among people and across racial divides, during both slaverytime and freedomtime, are at the heart of this mesmerizing and surprising first novel.

 

Like her mother, Rue is an all-knowing midwife, healer, and conjurer of curses on the plantation of Marse Charles. Moving back and forth in time between the years before and after the Civil War, Conjure Women tells the story of Rue, the families she cares for, and the mysteries and secrets she knows about the plantation owner’s daughter, Varina.

 

Afia Atakora is a brilliant young writer who creates unforgettable characters, and an enthralling story written in unique and beautiful prose. Conjure Women is imbued with remarkable psychological insight into people and the lengths they will go to save themselves and those they love.
