In the early 1900s, the Virgin Islands are transferred from Danish to American rule, and an important ship sinks into the Caribbean Sea. Two sisters and their half brother are orphaned on Saint Thomas by the shipwreck, and are now faced with an uncertain identity and future. Each of them is beautiful, and each is in possession of a particular magic that will either sink or save them. Drawing from her own family history, Tiphanie Yanique chronicles three generations of the Bradshaw clan from 1916 to the 1970s, a tale of love affairs, curses, births, deaths, triumphs, and magic.
