â€śWe Walker women were born screaming into this world, the
beginning of a lifelong quest to find what would quiet us.
But whatever drove us away was never stronger than the pull
of what brought us back....â€ť
When Vivien Walker left her home in the Mississippi Delta,
she swore never to go back, as generations of the women in
her family had. But in the spring, nine years to the day
since sheâ€™d left, thatâ€™s exactly what happensâ€”Vivien
returns, fleeing from a broken marriage and her lost dreams
What she hopes to find is solace with â€śBootsie,â€ť her dear
grandmother who raised her, a Walker woman with a knack for
making everything all right. But instead she finds that her
grandmother has died and that her estranged mother is
drifting further away from her memories. Now Vivien is
forced into the unexpected role of caretaker, challenging
her personal quest to find the girl she herself once was.
But for Vivien things change in ways she cannot imagine when
a violent storm reveals the remains of a long-dead woman
buried near the Walker home, not far from the cypress swamp
that is soon to give up its ghosts. Vivien knows there is
now only one way to rediscover herselfâ€”by uncovering the
secrets of her family and breaking the cycle of loss that
has haunted them for generations.
