A Novel of Old New Orleans

Tess Nottebohm, a visual artist for most of her life, has set aside brushes to paint with words in this, her first novel. Set in an historically rich, diverse culture–where French and Spanish settlers, African slaves, black priestesses, quadroons, duchesses and scoundrels abound–this novel renders them all captives of that legendary Grande Dame: New Orleans, herself.Cover of Tess Nottebohm's novel
