"Blood of the Dragon Tree" tells of the dramatic life struggle of Congo Julia, an African princess who was abducted by Spanish slave traders and taken to Cuba to work tobacco fields in the mid-Nineteenth Century. She eventually becomes freed and moves to Key West, where she lives to 110 years. But at her death, her story is just beginning! The tale is spiced with spellbinding mysteries of the Afro-Cuban religion Santeria. And Mac McKinney, the lead character from Ritchie's best-selling novel "Cayo Hueso/Cuba Libre," returns-- much against his will-- in this new and exciting Saga.
This new novel is near completion and is expected to hit bookshelves this Fall.
