Bridges by Wendy Williamson
While joining the Peace Corps to escape the perils of her womanhood, Jessy finds herself in the throes of a Muslim animist world. Bugs, black magic, women issues, and polygamy shape her thoughts and feelings in Africa. A spider diviner predicts that Jessy is going to die, and unusual things start to happen. She meets a Frenchman who captures her heart and leaves her with an ancient book. When she finds her life in danger, this book takes her on an incredible journey through herself and the world, to discover the biggest secret that’s ever been told. The question is, will she live to share it? Or is it too late? Beware…once you start reading this book, you will not be able to stop. Three hours will change the way you think about yourself, and the purpose of your life, forever.
