Nalo Hopkinson’s third novel invokes the goddess of love
the name of redemption
Hopkinson’s time-traveling, genre-spanning novel weaves a
common thread of spiritualism and hope through three
intertwined stories of women possessed by Ezili, the
of love, as she inspires, inhabits, and guides them
trying personal and historical moments. Jeanne Duval is a
talented entertainer suffering from the ravages of a
sexually transmitted disease; Mer is a slave and talented
doctor who bears witness as Saint Domingue throws off the
yoke of colonial rule in the early nineteenth century; and
Meritet is a woman of the night who finds religion her own
way. Though the three are separated by many miles and
centuries, a powerful bond draws them together.
Epic, wrenching, and passionate, The Salt Roads is laced
with graceful, lyrical prose. Hopkinson has crafted a
one-of-a-kind novel that spans hundreds of years and
multiple countries to tell a mystical, heartrending story
self-worth, respect, and salvation.
