Abstract

**Warning: Some readers may find certain scenes in this book disturbing.**

Sadie, granddaughter of a Plains Indian woman imprisoned as a child in the Castillo de San Marcos/Ft. Marion in the 1870s loves and lives in Key West. The story is that of three generations of independent women. The culmination is the voyage up the East Coast of Florida by Sadie and her accidental ex-pat Cuban lover, Carlos, to St. Augustine to bury a mummified baby boy in the Matanzas River, and Sadie's memories of her mother and grandmother.

Local locations visited or mentioned in the text include the Castillo de San Marcos, the Bridge of Lions, and the Matanzas River marina.
