Florida Folk Magic Stories is a boxed set of all four of author Malcolm R. Campbell's Florida Folk Magic novels.
Novel 1, Conjure Woman's Cat: Lena, a shamanistic cat, and her conjure woman Eulalie live 1950s Florida in a small town near the Apalachicola River in Florida's lightly populated Liberty County. In Eulalie's time, women of color look after white children in the homes of white families and are respected, even loved, but distrusted and kept separated as a group. When some white boys rape and murder a black girl named Mattie near the sawmill, the police have no suspects and don't intend to find any. Eulalie, who sees conjure as a way of helping the good Lord work His will, intends to find answers.
Novel 2, Eulalie and Washerwoman: Torreya, a small 1950s Florida Panhandle town, is losing its men. They disappear on nights with no moon and no witnesses. Conjure woman Eulalie Jenkins, her shamanistic cat, Lena, and neighbor Willie Tate discover that the new "whites only" policy at the once friendly mercantile, and the creation of a plantation-style subdivision, are linked to corrupt city fathers, the disappearing men, rigged numbers gambling, and a powerful hoodoo man named Washerwoman. Even though Eulalie is older than dirt, her faith in the good Lord and her endless supply of spells guarantee she will give Washerwoman a run for his ill-gotten money and find some answers.
Novel 3, Lena: When Police Chief Alton Gravely and Officer Carothers escalate the feud between "Torreya's finest" and conjure woman Eulalie Jenkins by running her off the road into a north Florida swamp, the borrowed pickup truck is salvaged but Eulalie is missing and presumed dead. Her cat Lena survives. Lena could provide an accurate account of the crime, but the county sheriff is unlikely to interview a pet. When the feared Black Robes of the Klan attack the first responder who believes the wreck might have been staged, Lena is the only one who can help him try to fight them off. After that, all hope seems lost, because if Eulalie is alive and finds her way back to Torreya, there are plenty of people waiting to kill her and make sure she stays dead.
Novel 4, Fate's Arrows: In 1954, the small Florida Panhandle town of Torreya had more Klansmen per acre than fire ants. Sparrow, a bag lady; Pollyanna, an auditor; and Jack, the owner of Slade's Diner, step on fire ants and Klansmen whenever they can while an unknown archer fires fate-changing arrows at the Klan's leadership. They are not who they appear to be, and while they take risks, they must be discrete lest they end up in the Klan's gunsights. Bolstered by support from a black cat and an older-than-dirt conjure woman, they persist in their fight against the Klan, determined to restore law and order to a town overwhelmed by corruption.
