I discovered this book by a fellow Mother Writer and wanted to let you all know what a terrific book it is. It has not yet been released but is available on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com for pre-order. Check it out and support Mother's and Women who also write. Hailing from suburban North Carolina, Melody is thrown into, what is for her, the mysterious and exotic world of voodoo by her Grandmama, a white practicing voodooist. Melody encounters many well developed characters along her journey of finding the powerful Book of Obeah. As a first novel for Sandra Carrington-Smith, "The Book of Obeah" is a shinning achievement. Though not derivative, Carrington-Smith's work has some of the mysticism, pace and suspense of "DaVinci Code." "The Book of Obeah" is actually filled with suspense and towards the end it works really well as a psychological thriller. "The Book of Obeah," the novel is a complex book in much the same way as the famed real life Book of Obeah. Carrington-Smith's book is part novel, part teaching text, building a better understanding of the intricate complexities of voodoo and its multi-hued practitioners.
