Two enslaved youth, Samuel and Isaiah, find love with each other on a brutal Mississippi plantation called Empty. This is their story, the story of those who know and care for them, of those who use them and those who betray them. A story of then and now.

"Operatic. . . As the story layers itself and picks up to a devastating pace toward the end, it bursts forth in a crack of lightning and the reader is left aflame. The Prophets is an astounding book, at once potent and universe-level expansive, a sky unto itself."

--Sarah Neilson, The Seattle Times
