“The Adventures of a Black Girl in Search of God is a remarkable love, an incredible heist, an extraordinary funeral, and an impassioned search for answers to the profound mysteries of being alive. A beautiful and deeply moving story set in present-day Negro Creek, a 200-year-old Black community in Western Ontario. Rainey Baldwin-Johnson, a county doctor, struggles to come to terms with the loss of her daughter, the disintegration of her marriage, and an eccentric elderly father on an astonishing crusade.” (From the CPO Website)
