Description
From one of today's most gifted young Latin American writers, The Red of His Shadow tells a love story that unfolds against the heated backdrop of exotic religious rituals. It is Holy Week, and the Haitian sugar cane harvesters can temporarily forget their misery and lose themselves in the fervor of voudou. But amidst the colorful festival, a struggle for power, as well as a ferocious passion develops between Mistress Zule, voudou priestess and spiritual leader, and the infamous Simila Bolosse, a rival priest backed by the bloodthirsty tontons macoutes. Based on true events, this compelling novel delivers a tale of love, hatred, and death readers will not soon forget.
