    The poignant coming of age story of a twelve-year-old, dark-skinned African-American girl named Rena, who grew up in a mulatto family in a small southern town during the 1940s and 50s.

    Rena has to cope with the blatant racism of the time and the tensions over skin color within her own family. She is the first dark-skinned child born to a family of first-generation offspring of people of mixed white and black ancestry.

Thus, she embarks on a journey of discovery, uncovering family secrets surrounding her birth, her mother’s mental illness, and the motives behind the indifference her family feels toward her.

  • Jay Lillie - Four


    A young boy’s aspirations take him on a dangerous ride into the Eye of a bad
    storm and the land of adult infidelity.

    About the author:

    Author Jay Lillie, a Manhattan based lawyer, has travelled the globe representing
    American business clients and foreign banks and insurance companies regarding
    their investments in the U.S. His novels reflect the cultures and people of the
    many environments in which he has been employed to solve problems and close
    deals. The acclaimed Pacific Rebound is international suspense at its best and
    takes us from Manhattan, throughout what the author coins AustralAsia, to
    Japan, and the Great Australian Desert. His novels, Havana Passage, Justice,
    and Gitmo take place closer to home but feast on the same global awareness
    Jay Lillie brings to the stage of life. His characters are fictitious, but places and
    situations are very real, including those within the workings of Capital Hill
    and Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC, where most international lawyers
    spent the rest of their time. Jay’s experience racing sailboats in his teens, as a
    Naval Officer, and Bermuda Race veteran, brings the plot of FOUR to life.

  • Kermit L. Krueger - The Gold Redemption

As a boy, the church had been the center of his life. Now, he was being drawn to the exciting life that could be found in the saloons. Soon, he gained a reputation as a man to stand aside for on the Avenue. Yet, he could not shake the commitment he had made to the Lord. He needed to get away for a while where he could think. The mountains had always been his place of sanctuary. Would he find the answers there?

    About the author:

    All of my youth was spent dreaming of a land called Colorado. My life began in Iowa and from that perspective, it was hard to imagine what it would be like to live in a world so different from the one I knew. I was 29 before I got my chance and for the next 40 years, I worked and played in those magnificent mountains. I discovered a land of high places and vast expanses of wilderness. I visited the old mining camps and sought out the history of the colorful people that lived in those places so long ago. In so doing, I discovered a world of high adventure and larger than life characters that created an empire of freedom and opportunity like the world has never seen. I decided to put some stories together that closely paralleled the actual history of those places from a Christian perspective.
