THE SLEEPING NIGHT – Barbara Samuel

Strong, romantic women’s fiction from this multiple bestselling author. In 1940’s Texas an African American soldier returns to his hometown after fighting in World War II. His bitter memories of his father’s murder there make it unlikely he’ll stay in town for long; but then he reconnects with the young white woman he loved as childhood friends. Racism, romance, drama. A terrific romance drama from a very beloved author.

(June, 2012)
