bloodThe haunting rhythms of native Batá drums and the dark mysteries of Santeria cast a spell over newspaper reporter Mac McKinney as he uncovers the 200-year Saga of African princess and Santeria priestess, Congo Julia. Taken violently from her home village in the Congo by Spanish slave traders and transported on a ship of human misery, Congo Julia survives and grows while working at the Estanoz tobacco plantation in Colonial Cuba. In 1858, her saga takes her to Key West, a rough but burgeoning town of seafaring wreckers, spongers and cigar houses. Now, though long dead, Congo Julia is pursued by ghosts from her past and reporters from her future– as her saga carries her home.
