Just as Jezebel Turner and her family reel from the loss of Gran, they face a number of other conflicts that threaten not only their place on their South Carolina island but also their lives. With a police deputy looming over the family and presenting a constant threat, Jez’s uncle, Doc, decides it’s time for her and her twin brother, Jay, to learn rootwork. The African American folk magic has sustained the family for countless generations. However, as they are beginning their rootwork lessons, the spiritual and sinister descend upon the Turner family. More than rootwork potions and powders, Jez must tap into the magic deep within her to protect what is most important, her family.
