Girl meets world. The 12 year-old daughter of a poor, rural, black southern preacher and his wife, pregnant by the son of the State's wealthiest white family, triumphs over years of abandonment and tragedy.

Past Pulitzer-Nominee. Where Was God on May 15, 1974?

Girl Meets World, and Lives To Tell Her Story.

It was 1974 — the South. She was 12; he was 16. She was the daughter of a poor Baptist minister. He was a son of privilege. What happened on a hot day in May ended the life she knew. His was unaffected, until the passing of 14 years; a vicious murder; a display of arrogance and power; an unexpected visitor, and 'A Family Gathering'.

Ms. Cicely Tyson: "I have not been so moved by a novel since I first read Alex's book (Alex Haley,'s Roots). When the film is made, I'm laying claim to the role of Aunt Rose."

In 1974, the life of a pregnant 12 year-old daughter of a black, rural, southern minister is changed forever, when it is learned the unacknowledged father is the 16 year-old son of Arkansas's wealthiest and most powerful white family. Retribution, attempted suicide, and triumph mark 15 years of her forced exile in Chicago. A blind eye is turned upon a vicious murder; a callous display of arrogance and power, until a day of reckoning spawned by 'A Family Gathering.'

After reading the hardcover edition, Emmy-Award-Winning actress, Cicely Tyson personally called the author and said: “I have not been so moved by a novel since Alex’s book [Roots]”.
