Read full description of the books:Hailing from suburban North Carolina, Melody is thrown into, what is for her, the mysterious and exotic world of voodoo by her Grandmama, a white practicing voodooist. Melody encounters many well developed characters along her journey of finding the powerful Book of Obeah. As a first novel for Sandra Carrington-Smith, "The Book of Obeah" is a shinning achievement. Though not derivative, Carrington-Smith's work has some of the mysticism, pace and suspense of "DaVinci Code." "The Book of Obeah" is actually filled with suspense and towards the end it works really well as a psychological thriller. "The Book of Obeah," the novel is a complex book in much the same way as the famed real life Book of Obeah. Carrington-Smith's book is part novel, part teaching text, building a better understanding of the intricate complexities of voodoo and its multi-hued practitioners.
Read information about the authorSandra Carrington-Smith is an Italian-born author who relocated to the United States in the late 80’s after marrying a US soldier who was serving overseas. Although writing was Sandra’s deepest passion since childhood, her dream of becoming a published author had to be placed on hold for several years. Moving to a new country provided several challenges, the biggest one being the language barrier she encountered when she first arrived. In order to become fully integrated, Sandra tapped into her love for reading, and over time her vocabulary grew extensively. She gave birth to three children and devoted most of her time to raising a family. By the time she was in her late 30’s, Sandra decided to revisit her old passion for writing, and penned a novel of paranormal suspense, The Book of Obeah, followed by a self-improvement book, Housekeeping for the Soul: A Practical Guide to Restoring Your Inner Sanctuary. Both titles were sold to the same publisher and released in 2010, and The Book of Obeah went on to win an international book award. Currently, Sandra is working on two new novels: The Rosaries (the sequel of The Book of Obeah) and Shadows of a Tuscan Moon. She recently released Killer in Sight (A Tom Lackey Mystery), a psychological thriller set in North Carolina. Sandra Carrington-Smith lives in Raleigh, NC, with her husband, children and three cats.
