Back to Wando Passo is a passionate and elegantly written story of two related love triangles: one marriage unraveling in the present day, and another one shattered by the Civil War. The interweaving stories build to a simultaneous crescendo of betrayal, revenge, and redemption. Grappling with the tangled subject of race in America, the plot lines are haunted by an occult twist. When Ransom Hill, the contemporary protagonist, discovers a Civil War–era “prenda,” an iron pot used by Cuban slaves for conjuring, he unearths something very strange indeed.
