In the West African village of Lai, red-haired Gbessa is cursed at birth and exiled on suspicion of being a witch. She survives and finds new life in the settlement of Monrovia, where she meets June Dey, a man of unusual strength, and Norman Aragon, who can fade from sight at will. Together they will play an instrumental role in the tumultuous founding of Liberia. A transcendent debut that blends history and magical realism in a profound tale of resistance and humanity.
