Summary :

Timeless yet indelibly authentic, Gloria Naylor's Mama Day is set on the Georgia sea island of Willow Springs, where people still use only herbal medicine and honor ancestors who came over as slaves. On Willow Springs lives Mama Day, a matriarch who can call up lightning storms and see secrets in her dreams. But all of Mama Day's powers are tested when her great-niece, a stubbornly emancipated woman, finds her life and soul in danger from the island's darker forces. Mama Day is a powerful generational saga, at once tender and suspenseful, overflowing with magic and common sense.
