Overview
Macedonia inherits thirteen divining bones from her mother that have been handed down to her by countless generations. She believes when she throws them she can read their meaning. But do the bones work for her welfare or does she work for the agenda of the bones? Are those characters who live and work at the Maison Rouge Hotel in charge of their own destiny or have they all been drawn to the hotel by some secret power that works only for the bones’ benefit? A white girl bought for $500, a life changing revelation discovered in old pictures, two lives threatened by a storm at sea, a murder, a healing, and the slow but certain linking of generations, all become part of the forces at work in the lives of these characters.
