Brief Synopsis:
The 12 year-old daughter of a poor, rural, black southern preacher and his wife, pregnant by the son of the State’s wealthiest white family, triumphs over years of abandonment and tragedy.”Where Was God on May 15, 1974?” Pulitzer Nominated for Fiction 2007.
In 1974, the life of a pregnant 12 year-old daughter of a black, rural, southern minister is changed forever, when it is learned the unacknowledged father is the 16 year-old son of Arkansas’s wealthiest and most powerful white family. Retribution, attempted suicide, and triumph mark 15 years of her forced exile in Chicago. A blind eye is turned upon a vicious murder; a callous display of arrogance and power, until a day of reckoning spawned by ‘A Family Gathering.’
