When a man dies soon after her Great Aunt Tullie bashes his head with her cane, China's estranged mother frantically calls for her daughter's help. Rushing to her family's Mississippi plantation, China must determine if Tullie is guilty of homicide. She must also face the possibility of developing the same terrifying disease that tortures Tullie.

YES. BECAUSE IT VERY INTERESTING. GIVES AN INSIGHT INTO THE OLD PLANTATION SYSTEM. YOU CAN SEE THE SPANISH MOSS HANGING FROM THE TREES AND FEEL THE HUMIDITY STANDING IN THE AIR MAKING YOUR CLOTHES DAMP, AND HEAR THE GHOST FROM THE PAST THRU THE WHOLE STORY. IF THEY COULD BE TRUSTED TO FOLLOW THE STORY EXACTLY IT WOULD MAKE A FANTASTIC MOVIE!
PEARL & AUNT PETULIA. BECAUSE THEY WERE WOMEN OF ACTION. THEY DIDN'T HAVE MUCH POWER IN THE TIMES THEY LIVED IN, BUT THEY TOOK DECISIVE ACTION IN THE MOST POWERFUL WAYS THAT THEY COULD. AND I LOVE THEM AND APPLAUDE THEM FOR IT.
WHEN IT WAS FINALLY REVEALED ABOUT ALL THE PAST ASSOCIATIONS BETWEEN THE INVOLVED FAMILIES AND THE ACTION THAT AUNT PETULIA TOOK IN REVENGE FOR CLANCY HAVING ORDERED HER HUSBAND KILLED.
I ACTUALLY LOVE THE NAME. PEARL'S & PETULIA'S JUSTICE IS APPROPRIATE, BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE THE MYSTERIOUS SOUND THAT "BLOODROOT" DOES.
FANTASTIC STORY. I THINK IT IS DEFINATELY MS. ALBERTS BEST IN THE CHINA BAYLES SERIES I'VE HEARD.
