After I read it, I can definitely say that is was worth every penny! It is based on actual facts (unlike a lot of the other books about Marie Laveau) found in records and in addition to all the facts I learnt about Marie Laveau it gives a great view of the history of New Orleans in general. I loved it, it was a great read!
I have to give the author my respect for 10 years of work on this project. She did a great job. Perhaps I will read one of the embellished works for fun but I guess I'd rather have a good read that is as close to the truth as possible.
If you are interested in sorting through the stories about Marie, this is the book to get. I would have loved to pick up a book with a beautiful story and not a textbook. However, I commend the author on writing an extremely well researched book that brings the time and story to life.
