Overview

"The Voodoo Breast: A Novel of Healing" features a Minnesota woman who is drawn to New Orleans for restorative breast surgery. Her post cancer journey reveals unforeseen trials in her marriage and forces her to re-evaluate the future she had taken for granted. She finds solace and salvation while exploring the mystical city.
Ghostly jazz music, disembodied whistling, and a realistic dream of another realm fuel Allie’s fascination with a growing host of unusual events and curious coincidences, which causes Kevin, her husband and travel companion, to question her grip on reality. The novel includes lyrical descriptions of the French Quarter’s streetscapes, music, food, people, shops, traditional events and Voodoo ceremonies. Allie feels a kinship with the healing, post-Katrina city and to New Orleans Voodoo and privately names her own reconstructed breast “the Voodoo breast.” While visiting New Orleans sites and ceremonies together, Kevin begins questioning his own skepticism and must decide whether to become more open to all of life’s experiences. The couple finds their love and faith tested by time, illness and their diverging views of reality.
