Son of A Preacherman
A NovelPaperback - 2012
"Benjamina Freeman and her family live in one of the most successful African American neighborhoods in the 1920s South--their own wealth a product of hard work, business savvy, and Tulsa's oil boom. Not even strict segregationist policies could hinder development in the Greenwood district. Billy Ray Matthias, the son of the new pastor in town, is convinced that 'Benny' Freeman is the woman God has for him. Benny, on the other hand, is not so sure. As his efforts to win her love intensify, so does the surrounding political and social climate. Racial tensions erupt into violence, culminating in the infamous Tulsa Race Riot. Billy and Benny find themselves caught in the heat of chaos as their hometown crumbles around them. He vows to keep her safe--will she let him? And will their faith be enough to sustain them amidst deadly acts of hatred?"--P.  of cover.
