Publisher's Summary

Aged Mother Jilo is wise in the ways of magic...but once upon a time, she was just a girl.
1950s Georgia: King Cotton has fallen. Savannah is known as the "beautiful woman with a dirty face," its stately elegance faded by neglect, its soul withering from racial injustice and political corruption.
Young Jilo - fiercely independent, intelligent, and ambitious, but thwarted by Savannah's maddeningly genteel version of bigotry - finds herself forced to embrace a dark power that has pursued her family for generations, an ancient magic that may prove her salvation...or her undoing.
Explore the fascinating history of one of the Witching Savannah series' most vivid and beloved characters, as the resourceful and determined Jilo comes of age, strives to master formidable magical skills in the face of overwhelming adversity, and forges her strange destiny against the turbulent backdrop of the civil rights struggle in the American South.

Change of Heart

I almost put the book down because I found the first few chapters boring, and what I felt was not applicable to what I expected. Suddenly things changed and I fell in love with it like I did the other books that had Jilo and the Taylors in it. I just wish I had listened to it first, but in didn't call for it in the series.
I hope author will consider adding to the series because the last books ending left many of us disappointed. We want more! A worthwhile series that brought me many marathons hours of pleasure!

Great story series

Loved this story line. I found it fresh and new. It kept my attention and I ran through it very quickly. I recommend it highly. I enjoyed the characters and the story line. I am looking forward to the next story in the series.

Excellent Pre-sequel to Witching Savannah Series.

A most excellent pre-sequel to the Witching Savannah Series!
Jilo was one of the best and mysterious characters in the first 3 books, so it was great to have her own story and history in a book to herself.
Really loved her story, from birth right through to becoming the Mother Jilo we all love.
A suberb finale.
