"A luscious, engaging, and heartfelt novel with plenty to say about individual responsibility
and the legacy of slavery."Library Journal
"Like The DaVinci Code, Back to Wando Passo takes its readers deeply into an arcane,
fascinating, and dangerous body of knowledge and belief; the ancient voudou religion is both healing and
deadly. And fans of Cold Mountain will appreciate Payne's close attention to period detailto
exactly how life was experienced in the 19th centuryas well as his knowledge of the Civil War. But this
is really, finally, a love story that spans the century, going beyond death. Back to Wando Passo
holds the deepest themes of human lifepassion, jealousy, race, and beliefat the center of its torn heart."
Lee Smith, author of Saving Grace
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.
