Publisher's Summary

Aged Mother Jilo is wise in the ways of magic...but once upon a time, she was just a girl.

1950s Georgia: King Cotton has fallen. Savannah is known as the "beautiful woman with a dirty face," its stately elegance faded by neglect, its soul withering from racial injustice and political corruption.

Young Jilo - fiercely independent, intelligent, and ambitious, but thwarted by Savannah's maddeningly genteel version of bigotry - finds herself forced to embrace a dark power that has pursued her family for generations, an ancient magic that may prove her salvation...or her undoing.

Explore the fascinating history of one of the Witching Savannah series' most vivid and beloved characters, as the resourceful and determined Jilo comes of age, strives to master formidable magical skills in the face of overwhelming adversity, and forges her strange destiny against the turbulent backdrop of the civil rights struggle in the American South.

    "I'm sorry to saga has ended n"

    I've eagerly read all of the Witching Savannah tales and am now sad to think its over. Jilo may may been the best of them all, but perhaps only because she provide a new and different perspective to the story line. all the witching behaviors. These are folks I know now and don't wish to depart from.

    The performance artist could not have poetry the angst, drama, and palpable fear more clearly!

    Totally loved and dilly dallied bhut hicompletion b

    "Perfect addition to the series "

    Mia Ellis is the perfect compliment to JD Horn's book; together they bring Jilo's story to vivid life. Jilo is my favorite character in the Witching Savannah series and it was wonderful to see her explored in depth, from Mother Wills' loving protection to Jilo coming into her own. First we follow May, her grandmother, and her relationship with magic and raising her granddaughters. A villain is introduced and we see him again in Jilo's life. (Not sharing more than that - spoilers, sweetie!) The second half is Jilo's story, her ambition to become a doctor, meeting Guy and the Taylors, and her powers.

    Took off half a star: My only complaint is the villain's death is almost anticlimactic, but taken in context, it works.

    While this is just a companion book, I would recommend this first and then the series. The Line and the source of the magic she and Mercy Taylor share may make more sense in how it's introduced in this book than in the series. This book could also be read alone, but I don't think you'll be able to resist reading the others.

    Story
    "STIRRED MY SOUL!"

    I never write reviews... but this! This is a work of art! I have never experienced such sou-shaking details from ALL of the characters! The history, the pain, the anguish, the true times of how things were, everything within the book makes me want to sob that it is over!

    The narrator did the best job I've ever heard! The writer, oh my word... I read the previous three books involving some of these characters along with Mercy, which I enjoyed, but this book takes the cake. This is a true work of art, I am rocked to the core.

    I cannot say enough good things about J.D. Horn's talent. I wish the story continued....

    It might not start off super-fast, but when it takes off, it zooms. Hold on and listen carefully b/c there is a reason for all of the details. Don't miss out.

    "Good read"
    What did you love best about Jilo?

    You have to be into this type of story line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jilo's coming in to her own


    Which character – as performed by Mia Ellis – was your favorite?

    All of them would have liked more on Momma Tuesday


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Maybe I got bored towards the end

    "Good story, but lacked it being complete"

    I really liked the story and the background of jilo;however, I was expecting to fill in some of the gaps of how the taylor/wills families harbored more of their strife. Also, how Jilo started using her magic again to the point we started the series. I think it's a good stand alone book, but not a continuation or extension, really, of the series.

    "way to much filler not enough much magic"

    the story was all about filling pages.
    if you didn't read the first books and recently it was hard to follow. it did help me sleep at night though. (boring)

    "good read, a must read"

    . Loved the story I really liked the narrator, it gave character to the story. I am left wondering if the narrator was from the southern region of our country.

    "Excellent Pre-sequel to Witching Savannah Series."

    A most excellent pre-sequel to the Witching Savannah Series!
    Jilo was one of the best and mysterious characters in the first 3 books, so it was great to have her own story and history in a book to herself.
    Really loved her story, from birth right through to becoming the Mother Jilo we all love.
    A suberb finale.
