The CelestialsBook - 2013
Combining historical and fictional elements, The Celestials beautifully reimagines the story of Sampsons Chinese experiment and the effect of the newcomers threatening and exotic presence on the New England locals. When Sampsons wife, Julia, gives birth to a mixed-race baby, the infant becomes a lightning rod for the novels conflicts concerning identity, alienation, and exile.
