|In Belle Place, Louisiana, where the sugarcane grows a mile high to the
bright blue sky, Celeste struggles with her mentally ill mother, Tut, and works
with her grandmother Maymay to hold the Creole Bastille family together.
Celeste has bigger dreams for her life, and is falling for the handsome and
wealthy Vashan. But, when Tut runs away to live with the man she met
working in the sugarcane to escape her reputation as the town whore,
Maymay fears that Celeste will end up like her mother. And just as things are
finally looking up for Tut, her past returns with violent, tragic results. Will
Celeste end up like her mother, or will she redeem her family from the
hoodoo curse that haunts them? And will she find love with someone from a
culture just as exotic as her own?
