Summary
"Josephine Thomas has heard every conceivable theory about her mother's disappearance ... Most troubling of all was the charge that her mother had been a witch, for in a world where witches are real, peculiar behavior can raise suspicions and result in a woman--especially a Black woman--being put on trial for witchcraft. But fourteen years have passed since her mother's disappearance, and now Jo is finally ready to let go of the past. Yet her future is in doubt. The state mandates that all women marry by the age of thirty--or enroll in a registry that allows them to be monitored, effectively forfeiting their autonomy. At twenty-eight, Jo is ambivalent about marriage. With her ability to control her life on the line, she feels as if she has never understood her mother more. When she's offered the opportunity to honor a request from her mother's will, Jo leaves her regular life to feel connected to her mother one last time"--Dust jacket flap
