Description:

Elongated street lamps bow to the earth like angels and give dim light to the dark city. Silent prayers for the dead and the living are made and there arises an urban fantasy of allegorical insight and power. Storms of the Orisha traces the life of Deborah Hendricks as she struggles to overcome her dementia, her traumatic past, and her historical emptiness.

Searching for meaning, she finds solace in the teachings of an archaic African Religion and the enigmatic priest who holds secrets of reincarnations and resurrections yet to come. Under his guidance, the trusting aspirant is led to believe that she will give birth to a girl-child who will become the savior of humanity. But, Deborah’s life is not made any easier: She is betrayed by the priest; the child is born deformed; and she is under investigation for the murder of her college professor. The distraught mother soon realizes that she and her child are being purified by tragedy –that they are caught in the middle of an eternal war between the divine orisha and the evil ajogun.

The salvation of humanity lay in the balance and the demons are winning...or so it appears. At the pivotal moment, the deformed child reveals her true self as Oshun, the goddess who pleads for humankind at the feet of the Creator.  And, the tides are turned.

REVIEWS:

 “I finished the book twice…smile…It is full of hidden and not so hidden anecdotes. It cleverly intertwines many religions and spiritual teachings in a way that makes you question your own convictions. It is a tale of a woman who suffers from dementia. In my daily job, I have the pleasure to serve many people who manage mental illness. Their thoughts are real to them. …Reality… Adesanya’s story is her reality. From her tormented mind comes a story of love, renewal, and clarity. The clarity of her visions is captivating. Reading the novel is like reading poetry. I had to read over some parts a few times just to take it all in. I really enjoyed it. Being a Newark resident for life, I identified with the references made to actual streets and locations. Mr. Karade, thank you for this contribution to the world.” Lynette Sheard

 
I really enjoyed reading Storms of the Orisha. It told a real life scenario that continued with mind boggling twist and turns like a movie. The author portrayed the characters as witty yet clever. As the story moves forward, no one is who you originally thought they were. The author captured your attention from the very start and the roller coaster ride never stops. With an open mind and the ability to think outside the box, this book is a must read.  Cheryl Ray
