An excerpt from Chapter Six, THE TEA THAT CURES EVERYTHIN'
Bush medicine? What's that? Mia wondered if it was like witch doctors or voodoo.
“We have a wise woman everybody calls Auntie Cecilia. When a body gets sick, she comes and makes them a tea. My Aunt Teeny was sick somethin’ awful. She got real skinny, and couldn’t eat nothin’. When she try to eat, it jus’ come up again. Auntie Cecilia bring her some of her tea. She say for Aunt Teeny to drink it three times a day. And she got right betta’! Aunt Teeny, she be makin’ 90 years this July!”
“Do you think this tea could make my mom feel stronger?”
“Oh, yes, ma’am. This be the tea that cures everythin’!” Neisha placed her hands on her hips. “Yes, ma’am!”
“I’ve got to get me some of that tea!” Mia lit up. “Where do we find Auntie Cecilia?”
