Victory Boulevard, Savannah, Georgia. 1923. Saint John’s First Baptist Church stands in the center of town just a few blocks from the railroad tracks laid down by the hands of slaves only forty-five years earlier. At noon Reverend Hartmann finishes his sermon, releases his congregation and gathers outside with a few men.
The conversation switches from God to politics. That’s when the gossip starts.
Later, across town, young Ruth declares, “We have to be sisters.”
“We should be sisters,” thirteen year old Viola agrees around her mouthful of cookies.
“Then let’s be sisters.”
“We can’t be sisters. You’re white. I’m not.”
Based on real events Viola, Field of Flowers is the touching story of two girls who come together and form the unlikeliest of friendships. Although forever separated by the color of their skin, Viola and Ruth share a story of truth, love and the power of family despite the tragedies of this era of segregation.
236 pages in length, Viola: Fields Of Flowers is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the action and adventure category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Viola meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $17.95.
Additionally, Viola can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore.
