(From the publisher):
Twenty-year-old Sara Edgehill has left her native Trinidad in 1963 to attend college in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where she joins two other girls -- Courtney from St. Lucia and Angela from British Guyana -- in the task of integrating the all-white school. For Sara, coming from a world in which she is connected to a vibrant community and culture, this cold, alien place in which she is neither loved nor understood is profoundly shocking and disorienting.
She longs to return to Trinidad, but knows she must finish college. Slowly, Sara finds support in her friendship with Courtney, who covertly proctices voodoo rituals, and in a blossoming relationship with Sam, an African-American who draws her into the turbulent civil rights movement.
