Publisher's Summary

Back to Wando Passo is a passionate and elegantly written story of two related love triangles: one marriage unraveling in the present day, and another one shattered by the Civil War. The interweaving stories build to a simultaneous crescendo of betrayal, revenge, and redemption. Grappling with the tangled subject of race in America, the plot lines are haunted by an occult twist. When Ransom Hill, the contemporary protagonist, discovers a Civil War-era "prenda", an iron pot used by Cuban slaves for conjuring, he unearths something very strange indeed.


What the Critics Say

"A luscious, engaging, and heartfelt novel with plenty to say about individual responsibility and the legacy of slavery." (Library Journal)
"Like The DaVinci Code, Back to Wando Passo takes its readers deeply into an arcane, fascinating, and dangerous body of knowledge and belief." (Lee Smith, author of Saving Grace)

Who Do? The Voodoo?!

This was an excellent listen, a guilty treat from the 'over 20 hours' section in Unabridged!

The story is essentially split in two, charting the lives of two couples in present day South Carolina and during the North v South war in the 1800s. Again, I have to praise audible for making history more accessible to people like me, who had no previous interest whatsoever. The detail of the war and the life in a plantation is superb.

The couples both lived in the familial plantation home and discovery of a buried pot, or cauldron, leads to spooky similarities in each couples' tales.
