Villages, Ghosts, Lovers....And Red Rice is a hauntingly delightful true story of events that took place in the life of an African American family living in Savannah, Georgia from 1963 to 2000. Both dramatic and, at times, twistingly humorous, the story touches on root working, controversial interracial relationships, an eccentric 'dognapper', a piano teacher's relationship with a wealthy antique dealer who holds dark secrets, and other equally interesting events and personalities. Though centered in Savannah, events also take place in Manhattan New York, New Orleans, and on Martha's Vineyard. Rich in both Southern and African American culture, Villages, Ghosts, Lovers....And Red Rice reveals the spirit of a city that lures people to its sultry climate and mesmerizing beauty....and never let's go!

Villages, Ghosts, Lovers....And Red Rice is a rich, colorful, and intriguing story. My favorite chapters are Woodrow, Rooster, and The Sugarcane Lady, Waterfront Blues, and The Mayor's Brown Sugar. Sometimes I laughed until I cried and sometimes I was totally touched by the various events that took place in the story. You couldn't help but to read the story twice!
