The Carving Circle by Gretchen Heffernan

Category: .

What happens when a black artist moves to a small town in 1950’s America?

Jacques Beaumont is a French Haitian artist of Voodoo ancestry with the ability to resurrect the dead through his sculpture.  While living in remote Illinois, he falls in love with tragic Elora Donnelley, the abused wife of the sheriff and ringleader of the areas white supremacy group.   The heartbreaking consequences of their desire send tremors through both the living and the dead.

The Carving Circle is a ghostly love story that interlaces racism, rebirth, and art.
