by Lyn Lejeune
From the author of the acclaimed historical thriller, The Beatitudes, comes an intriguing interracial Dust Bowl-era love story about the unlikeliest of partnerships—the son of a wealthy railroad baron and a black fundamentalist preacher, who together, aim to take the gospel to the uncharted American wilderness. Their resulting friendship is a test of both character and compassion as they question race, war, religion and salvation—just as the rest of the nation is ravaged amidst global depression.
Lejeune depicts the post WWI era impressively through her talented writing. For anyone with an interest in the history of this depressed time in America, or an interest into the mystique of fate, which brings completely different strangers together, to walk the same path, you will most likely find this book to be a great read!
