The Salt Roads is the epic journey of Ezili, the Afro-Caribbean goddess of love and sex who in a bid to discover her own nature, defies the limitations of time and place to inhabit the minds of living women throughout history: Jeanne Duval, the sensual woman with whom 19th century poet Charles Baudelaire has a passionate but dysfunctional affair; Meritet, the Nubian prostitute on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem in 300 A.D. who walks away from the desert into history as St. Mary of Egypt and Mer, a slave struggling to survive under the tyranny of brutal masters on Saint Domingue, soon to be renamed Haiti.
