Welcome to Bailey's Cafe, where the food isn't much, but the ambiance is graced by myth and magic. Sadie is the lady-like alcoholic with a mania for cleanliness; Sweet Esther caters to unspeakable appetites in a nearby "boarding house," taking payment only in white roses; and Mariam is the Ethiopian child who may be the bearer of a miracle. Naylor's breathtaking novel is an enthralling fusion of lives whose courage, mystery, and humor suggest nothing less than a blues tapestry of America.
