It was a huge shoot out in the middle of the woods that night and all four brothers; Raheem, Abraham Jr, (& the twins), Jason and Jalen all got away that night to Mr. Charlie’s secret old cabin near the lake. With the support of other activist and a Doctor name Dr. Glen Norton they continue to raise the brothers into men and help them learn to cope with life again. The chosen son is Jr and one thing he remembers his father telling him is that he wants him to embark on his legacy and follow his footsteps to fight one day. Sr. also called Jr the protector.

  • Pursuit of a Passion

    “After being pronounced dead in the hospital, I came back to life…”

    In this manuscript, the author writes about his drama-filled existence that has taught him many important life lessons. The book begins with Mr. Finkley sharing memories of growing up under the roof of a strict father in Virginia. Enlisting in the United States Army pushed Mr. Finkley’s personality and beliefs to the brink of falling apart. After barely escaping service with his personality intact, the author began to embrace his true self. Writing helped guide Mr. Finkley into following his dreams. The manuscript concludes with “Abraham Jr.’s Corner,” a story about following “one of the few free black families in the south” following World War II. This work may appeal to readers who enjoy inspirational books.
