Everett Prewitt is a natural story teller. I was drawn right into the story. He captured my attention from the first paragraph. The plot carries with it all the elements of conflict, romance, and intrigue. The action is heightened by a masterful pacing of conflict and resolution. I highly recommend this book anyone consciously trying to bridge the social injustices of the past with the hope of the future. This is a brilliant, penetrating novel.

While the beginning of the book was a little slow, a little perseverance will put you deep within the soul of a touching, thrilling story like no other. You've never seen the times of racial wars like this before, I can assure you. It's a wonderful book that will open your eyes to many things, including what true love and family means.
Beverly Pechin, Reader Views
Suspense, fear and racial tension keep the reader glued to the pages. This is a story of the closeness of a strong African American family. Prewitt weaves historical events (fictional) throughout the book. This is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. If I could, I would give it six stars.
