A haunting historical novella, Lowcountry Spirit tells the story of three slave girls with mystical powers living on an eerie island off the coast of Georgia whose lives intertwine in their quest for freedom. Meet Emmaline, Celestia, and Liza, three slave girls on a haunted barrier island in Georgia low country. Emmaline is a mouthy, stubborn young woman who has magic in her blood and conjures the strongest spells with hardly any effort. Celestia was ten when her mother was sold and taken from the island. She's never stopped longing for her, even when the talking chain—a verbal underground railroad—sends word that her mother has been taken to a plantation in North Carolina. By the time she turns sixteen, she can no longer bring her mother's face to mind, but she can still hear her urging Celestia to be thankful and keep safe. Liza was a birthday gift to the plantation's mistress. Her mama was killed for throwing a spell on her master. Before she died, she gave Liza her book of conjures so she could protect herself. And when Liza hatches a plan for all three of them to escape, the three girls' lives collide. What they don't realize is that their chances of successfully escaping are slim and the possibility that all three will die before they leave the island is far more likely.
