It's a book filled with imagery, sounds, and beautiful characters. Each of the women in this book has something that binds them together. You can read it very quickly because the different stories entangle you. I especially liked the way the author uses plants and herbs to add some extra information about the spiritual world. It is truly magical.

What can I say? Not enough!!
One of my favorite part of the book is on page 257, second paragraph, where the reader can feel the strength, the greatness and "ferocity" of Bella.
This book was beyond my expectations. I bought the book because the title and the cover, created by "Brown 1979" called my attention (each time I look to the cover I find a new interesting detail).

This is a great book to read over a course of few delicious do-nothing days or in a dedicated sitting (or two)

From the narrative perspective to the superb story-telling style (a lost art), to the imagery, to the beautifully rich characters, this book was absolutely incredible. I have never before seen such an original novel that forced you to pay attention (rather, made you want to read closely) but didn't come across like the writer is showing off. There seems to be a trend toward "cleverness," or writing as confusing a novel as possible thinking that makes it brilliance. Marcia Douglas reminds us that brilliance isn't forced. Madam Fate makes you question and think, and is amazingly and beautifully written.
Her novel feels like an afternoon in the sunshine. The warmth and its memory and effects stay with you long after you've finished it...and you find yourself wondering how Ida and Gracie are doing...

Madam Fate brings to life so many pleasantly familiar images and ideas with which Caribbean people will identify. From the cover right into the text there is a powerful sense of local history and experiences. Even more refreshing is the way the book captures the reaity of the natural ecology of Jamaica in a way that few novels even attempt to do. I strongly recommend the book for any one, but particularly for those seeking to reconnect with their Caribbean homelands.

This is a wonderful book. If you have ever been to Jamaica, you understand the passion of the characters. Great job Mouse!
