(PRLEAP.COM) July 8, 2014 - "The Meadow," a new book by Rebecca Kennedy, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co.

Straight out of the Louisiana swamp comes this colorful tale of greed, love, voodoo, and the dark secrets of family. The lives of generations of families become intertwined as descendants of an Indian tribe work to regain the lost wealth of their ancestors.

Colorful characters populate scenes from the antebellum South to the modern day, including bayou priestesses, herb healers, plantation owners, twin sisters, sharecroppers, and Jake, the canine who's more than a dog.

Will bonds be broken? Will wealth be restored? Or will the forces of voodoo curse these families forever?
