Caul Baby

A fascinating and riveting book following three generations of Black women. The Melancons have a magical power of sorts; their skin has a layer of caul that has healing powers when cut and given away. The community of Harlem, where they reside in a formidable brownstone, has been angry with them for years as they prefer to sell their magic caul at high prices to white customers instead of helping their predominantly African American community. A combination of secrets, betrayals, and some messed-up priorities set things aflame both literally and figuratively! Fans of Ta-Nehisi Coates and Jacqueline Woodson will be delighted and maybe a little obsessed with Caul Baby.
