Synopsis: Some time after U.S. Civil War, charming little girl Easter grows up on a tobacco plant in the South. Her life is filled with inherited African magic, full of helpful Angels. When some self-inflicted catastrophe comes up, she takes a pact with the Devil which will be repaid some years later.
Review: Wilson tries a literary device by throwing in chunks of a narrator’s voice every now and then. In addition, the author tries to strengthen authenticity by using slang like “y’all, must of been, should of been” or a couple of French sentences. It didn’t work at all for me: I was constantly thrown out of the narration, stumbling over those constructs.
