520    Laila desperately wants to become a mother, but each of 
       her previous pregnancies has ended in heartbreak. This 
       time has to be different, so she turns to the Melancons, 
       an old and powerful Harlem family known for their caul, a 
       precious layer of skin that is the secret source of their 
       healing power. When a deal for Laila to acquire a piece of
       caul falls through, she is heartbroken, but when the child
       is stillborn, she is overcome with grief and rage. What 
       she doesn't know is that a baby will soon be delivered in 
       her family--by her niece, Amara, an ambitious college 
       student--and delivered to the Melancons to raise as one of
       their own. Hallow is special: she's born with a caul, and 
       their matriarch, Maman, predicts the girl will restore the
       family's prosperity. Growing up, Hallow feels that 
       something in her life is not right. When mother and 
       daughter cross paths, Hallow will be forced to decide 
       where she truly belongs.
