A fictionalized true story of life in the Deep South during the time of Jim Crow Law, and before Roe vs. Wade. Women were supposed to keep quiet and serve, abortion was illegal, adoption difficult, and racism rampant. The discovery of an old ledger opens a window into the dynamics of the 1950s-60s, when the world was beginning to change.

Unspoken secrets are shared between Beatrice, The Good Doctor’s wife, and Moses Grier, their black handyman. The Grier’s daughter, Althea, suffers a tragedy that leaves her family silent and mournful. Her brother, Nathan, looks for answers from a community that is deaf, blind, and dumb.

A summer romance between Nathan and Sybil, an independent, high-spirited, white woman, leaves more unresolved. Sybil is torn between living the mundane life of her peers, or a life that involves fastening herself to a taboo relationship. Witness social progress through the eyes of those who lived it.

“Nicholls has a distinct and powerful voice. Steeped in history, this novel deeply penetrates the surface of a complex era providing a rich and full-bodied reading experience.”
~ Sammie Vittoria, Library Media Specialist

“This is no fluffy romance. This book has substance and is storytelling at its finest.”
~ Roseendhar Dasilma, R.N., BSN

    • Knowing that it is really close to getting the book in print is very exciting because I’ll be doing book signings and having a launch party here in Orlando on I-Drive. I have my new bookmarks now and some long black t-shirts that Mother Falcon is printing the book cover image on as give aways. This is for real 🙂

    • I think that they are slowly getting back to having pictures on the Reader. Maybe it was just a temporary thing. I am seeing images now, but they are much smaller that they used to be. There is a lot of white space around the images.

  1. Good news. I can see you at the book signings now. My favorite message to a reader is, “Thank you for not stealing this book.” Don’t remember who did that , but I want you to know I bought the e-version. Will review when done. 🙂

  2. Well I just can’t wait for the paper version so I just bought this gorgeous book from Amazon and will *try* very hard to make myself wait until I’m done with NaNo to start reading. (Because I have no self-control, and my NaNo wordcount would be in the toilet…)
