A mysterious talisman originating in the slave and chocolate trade travels to Revolutionary War era Boston where it is passed through the centuries. It comes into the hands of boyhood friends Finn Leahy and Tony Sebastiene. Then it, and their friendship, is lost amidst social upheaval and tragedy afflicting the neighborhood. The talisman resurfaces in a present day Boston confronted with a terrorist threat that seems to implicate the Dorchester Haitian community and a dream research center. Finn and Tony, now sixty, join with Finn’s son to encounter uncertain threats and the enduring mystery of the talisman. The story is set in the Codman Square (aka Baker’s Corner) area of Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood and is framed by the founding and success of James Baker’s nearby Neponset River chocolate mill and its closing in 1965. The characters travel varied paths. They arrive, like the reader, with their own perspectives and conclusions in the same enduring place...Baker’s Corner.
