Son of A Preacherman Blog Tour-Tywebbin Creatons

Tywebbin Creations Blog Tour 

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.
The characters:  Billy Mathis: The kind of man every woman desire.  successful, good looking, considerate, nicely built, intelligent. Respectful. son of a preacher
Bennie - Only daughter of a rich oil family.  A teacher by profession. Intelligent, Christian, What's in her pass that hinders her from loving a man again? 
Ethan - An attorney that may have went to far as the White Glove Society sees it.
Maynard - The radical Caucasian attorney: Has he made the Hit List of the White Glove Society?
The Book Cover - The author did it again with a remarkable book cover design.  Its a definite connection to the story line. The picture kinda remind you of one seen in your grand/great grand parents album. Loving it!
Write it down: Marlene Banks, Historical author.  She has already penned two great novels. Watch out for her, she's coming through and earning the rights to the RED Carpet among Historical authors.  
This novel sits on my bookshelf as a DARN GREAT READ!!

MARLENE BANKS resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In addition to being a prolific writer she has an associate degree in Theology from Rhema Bible Institute in Keysville, Virginia and is currently pursuing studies to initiate a Christian counseling ministry. Marlene is a member of Bethel Deliverance International Church in Wyncote, Pennsylvania. Her work resume includes forty years in nursing and business.
A divine gift of storytelling with her unique voice and love of Christ creates engaging and inspirational novels. She considers her fiction writing an avenue to communicate the Gospel and Christian principles. It is also Marlene’s goal to bridge the gap between faith-based and secular literature. RUTH’S REDEMPTION is her first release and SON OF A PREACHERMAN is her second.
