Sometimes you have to go back home. The classic Sean Stewart novel, a 2000 New York Times Notable Book and the World Fantasy and Nebula Award Finalist. Elena Beauchamp used magic the way other people used credit cards. Now she's dead, and her daughters Toni and Candy have a debt to pay. Set in modern-day Houston, Texas, this is a funny and moving novel of voodoo, pregnancy, and family ties. While Toni sorts out the mess that Elena left behind, she must also come to terms with her childhood and with the supernatural and dangerous gift that she has inherited from her mother.
