Description - The Hotel Alleluia by Lucinda Roy

From the critically acclaimed author of Lady Moses, a powerful new novel of sisterhood and racial identity set against the violence of revolution-torn Africa.The Hotel Alleluia is the story of two half-sisters, separated in childhood and raised continents apart. Joan, grows up in North Carolina, while Ursuline is adopted by nuns in West Africa. Joan's quest to find Ursuline following their mother's death sets off a whirlwind of events in Africa as the sisters join forces with Gordon Delacroix, Joan's former lover, and Jeremy Scott, a troubled English writer. The days they spend together in the violence and bloodshed of a disintegrating nation change all four of them forever. Compelling and unforgettable, The Hotel Alleluia proves again that Lucinda Roy is one of the most original and lyrical voices in African American fiction.
