I had a really hard time getting into this book, but I LOVED the last 70 pgs that made it worth the read. It's about a small island off S. Carolina where only African American's live and it talks about their heritage to a degree, Mama Day, her grand niece Cocoa and Cocoa's boyfriend/husband. The book rotates through each of their thoughts of life etc. What I found most interesting was it talked about how Mama Day had "powers" so to say or "hoo doo". Is it real or not? Is she just smart with medicine and luck or does hoo doo work? Quite interesting.
