This story takes place in Tulsa OK, and is based on historical fact. It takes place in Greenwood, an oil rich area, mostly inhabited by people of African American decent. They were despised by some White people, because of their jealousy and racial hatred. From what I understand about this 1921 point in history was kind of swept under the rug.
The main characters in the book are the Freeman family, who own an oil rich ranch in Greenwood. Their Son Cord runs the operation and has [according to his family] made a poor choice of a wife. Their other son Ethan, is a well respected lawyer, and their sister Benny is trying to find her way. She was very much in love with an older man, when the unthinkable happened.
The other family is Reverend Matthias, his wife and son's...Dr Napoleon, and Billy Ray.
When Billy Ray and Benny meet...sparks fly, but they have a lot of strife and tribulation to over come, if they are ever going to get together.
Another good page turner by Marlene Banks, I really enjoyed her Ruth's Redemption.
I received this book from Tywebbin Virtual Tours, and Moody Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review
