Description

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.

    Although Jilo is the 4th book in the Witching Savannah series, it is actually the prequel to the first three.The Taylors, a family of Savannah witches with a large home on Forsythe Park, is the focus of the first three books. Jilo is a character in these books, too, but she is an elderly black witch descended from a long line of females practicing hoodoo magic. There is animosity between Jilo and the Taylors but we don't know the origins until this book. This novel begins with Jilo as a young child in the 1930s being raised by her grandmother, who keeps Jilo ignorant of the magic she possesses. However, events transpire that the magic comes to her when she is middle-age when her family and friends are threatened. I have a special love for this series since it is set in Savannah, my home away from home. If you have not read any novel in the series, I would recommend that you begin with Jilo and then proceed to The Line, which is the first book in the series. I believe that if I had done this I might have understood better some of Jilo's hatred of the Taylors.
