My Summary: The setting in this historical romance novel is set in the 1920s in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The segregated Greenwood District is located in Northern Tulsa. The African Americans that reside in this community are very well off citizens. Most of the A.A. own their own business or hold employment in careers not looked upon for A. A. to have during that era.
Accusations of rape and racial hatred stirs up the community and the White Glove Society seeks to destroy every successful A.A. family. With the social and political tension on an uproar, the romance between Billy Ray a pharmacist and Bennie, a teacher becomes strained but Billy Ray is determine to make their love last forever. Can he if he goes to jail for the crime? Will this black Wall Street community survive the tension, hatred and backstabbing that threaten to rip this community apart?
My Review: The author, Marlene Banks, has done it again. I'm so loving her novels. This is the second novel I've read by the author and she is becoming a favorite, favorite. Historical romances has never read so divine as in her books. Its romance without the erotic grit of some novels for those that don't care for such. Its historical for those that enjoy reading a little about the past era's. Intertwining them together with amazing plots will definitely make this author a favorite among Historical genre readers.
