The saga continues! A disturbing letter from her great-aunts has brought Cheney to their indigo plantation outside of New Orleans, but what she and Shiloh discover is much more serious and dangerous than they imagined. A West Indies cult has begun performing rituals and rites just across the bayou from the plantation, and warnings appear–Cheney’s aunts are on “spirit ground” and they must leave.
When the aunts refuse, some of the servants and sharecroppers begin to suffer from a mysterious illness, and the new indigo crop fails.
Cheney and Shiloh and the rest of the family and friends must find out why the group is suddenly so interested in the plantation. But every attempt to protect Cheney’s great-aunts only leads to increasing hostility. They all may be in grave danger.
