Love Song of the Chinaberry Man


 It is said that in the deep woods right outside of Julia Springs, Georgia, lives a creature of myth and legend, the Chinaberry Man, so named due to the sweet, pungent scent remembered by those who have remotely come across him. Remotely because very few have lived to tell of a close encounter, except one. Gina McFarland has always been special: predicting plane crashes, having visions and dreams that come true—mostly the kind that don’t have happy endings. Now she sees the dead. And, of all people, the creature has chosen to save her. In a matter of days, several strange events threaten the peace of this quiet hamlet, all of which culminate in hatred and revenge, Mother Nature’s wrath, pure serendipity—and the love song of the Chinaberry Man.

About the author

 Even as a child, Trisha O’Keefe was impressed by the inherent power of alternative medicines. Indigenous healing practices are an ongoing theme in her novels. As a native Southerner, O’Keefe claims to have “a lot of red dirt” flowing in her veins. Growing up, she spent summers on her uncle’s farm in South Georgia, “mainly getting into trouble.” That trend has continued throughout her life. After traveling abroad for fourteen years, running into revolutions or governmental coups nearly everywhere she went—even Britain was in the midst of a labor strike when she moved there—she returned to the States. She is the daughter of Jimmy Jones, a well-known journalist for the Atlanta Constitution under Editor Ralph Magill. One of her earliest memories was the sound of a typewriter rattling away in the middle of the night. You would think that would have cured her from ever putting two words together, let alone a book. Still, at age 6, she co-wrote Spot, The Dog with her sister, followed a long time later by Hanahatchee, Poseidon’s Eye, and Lovesong of the Chinaberry Man. Two more novels, The Magi’s Well, and The Mama Tree will be published in 2016. “I guess some things you can’t cure,” O’Keefe says. “You just have to go where they take you.”
