Review by Marlene Engel
Set in the bayou of New Orleans, this book seamlessly goes from past to present as the Sorrow family seeks healing, forgiveness and moving on. The women in the Sorrow family come from a long line of seers, witches and healers. In 1901 is when their suffering started with Sister Vesta Grace’s confession. It was rumored that she had something to do with the death of all but one member of the once well-known Sorrow family. However, some believed that it was Rosella, the voodoo witch. For over a century, this mystery goes unsolved.
Frances Sorrow was looked at as the person who would bring back the honor to the Sorrow family. However, she had other thoughts. Instead she took off and had a short lived marriage to Danny Amore. When she returned home, she was introverted and kept away from the outside world. Then, her son disappears. As she goes in search of finding her son, she comes on secrets that tell of the mysteries of the past while also setting free the ghosts that haunt the family.
The Witch of Bourbon Street is a magical story about family and forgiveness. With a cast full of amazing characters and a story that will draw you in from the first page, this book is one for your To-Be-Read List.
