About this title


When Sara Edgehill leaves her home in Trinidad to attend college in Wisconsin, she finds solace and friendship with Courtney, another West Indian who covertly practices voodoo rituals, and Sam, a charismatic civil rights activist

From the Inside Flap:

"[A] haunting story . . . Bears witness to the struggles of an African Caribbean woman as she seeks to find her place in America without selling her soul." -BEBE MOORE CAMPBELL, Author of Your Blues Ain't Like Mine
When Sara Edgehill is given a scholarship to leave Trinidad and attend a college in Wisconsin, she is thrilled. America, the one she has seen in the movies, is a land of dreams, prosperity, and equality. Not like Trinidad, where her parents cast disappointed glances her way because she wasn't born with lighter-colored skin. But when Sara leaves her island's brilliant green fields and warm sparkling waters for the pale cornfields of the Midwest, the ties to her home and her past grip her as strongly as America's cold, winter winds.
For as soon as Sara sets foot in her new home, she must make tough decisions. Wanting desperately to fit in, she begins to understand that in America, the color lines run deeper than they did even in Trinidad. And as Sara forms ties with two other West Indian students-the beguiling, haunted Courtney and the passionate, vivacious Sam-she is irrevocably pulled into the very center of America's exploding civil rights movement.
