REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
After World War I in the coastal town of Heron Keys, Florida, war veterans are hired to build a bridge in the small, segregated community. In this intense drama filled with racial violence and prejudices, lost love, and power struggles, the community faces the biggest natural disaster it will ever see, a hurricane. With so many characters to love and hate, Under a Dark Summer Sky is spectacular – from the struggles of emotionally disturbed veterans returning from war, to white kids being raised by loving black servants. It all culminates with a thrilling, deadly hurricane, where everyone must make choices that decide their fate. Under the Dark Summer Sky is a must-read and perfect for summer – and the best book I’ve read this year that will appeal to a wide range of readers.
Under a Dark Summer Sky is available on Amazon June 9.
