Read full description of the books:



Beautifully-written. The power and movement of this story took me by surprise. A black middle-class widow in her 60s, Avatara "Avey" Johnson---listens to her gut feelings while on a cruise with friends, and without consciously knowing what lies ahead, abandons her vacation schedule. Much of the bittersweet narrative consists of flashbacks about her life with her husband, Jay/Jerome, and their three daughters. What I loved most is that this turned out to be a healing story for Avey: about recognizing a rich history of culturally-specific spiritual resources, and being responsive to the needs of her soul.
