About this title


This book embodies Neo Soul in the world of literature. It s a contemporary piece of work that reminds us of who we are and where we ve been. Beautifully told and poetically captured, it s a tribute to literary African-American pioneers. This magical narrative is the story of Murdock, a young girl with a special gift the gift of prophecy. Her ability enables her to predict the unthinkable, where she finds herself torn between helping others and resolving her own dark past, a past filled with ghosts, spirits and divine calling. This mystical tale unwinds from a small town in Jamison, Mississippi to a neighborhood on Chicago s South Side. It tackles some important cultural themes and how the community handles them, themes such as rape, racism, suicide and the surrendering of unborn children. At its core, it addresses the issue of what happens when we fail to adhere to our Divine Calling.
