Eulalie and Washerwoman
Description: Torreya, a small 1950s Florida Panhandle town, is losing its men. They disappear on nights with no moon and no witnesses. Foreclosure signs appear in their yards the following day while thugs associated with the Klan take everything of value from inside treasured homes that will soon be torn down. The police won’t investigate, and the church keeps its distance from all social and political discord. Conjure woman Eulalie Jenkins, her shamanistic cat, Lena, and neighbor Willie Tate discover that the new “whites only” policy at the once friendly mercantile and the creation of a plantation-style subdivision are linked to corrupt city fathers, the disappearing men, rigged numbers gambling, and a powerful hoodoo man named Washerwoman.
Review: “Despite the foundation of blatant inequality and disregard for human life this story centers around, Campbell has managed to infuse hope and humor into the reality of life. Authentic dialect spoken by the characters adds an additional layer of reality to the piece, embedding the reader directly into the danger and the action. This is without a doubt a unique and necessary blend of history and magic, delivered through a unique style of storytelling that will not disappoint.” – Elspeth Senz in Book Expo Review, June 2017, Issue #3.
