about

Song of Promise documents history through a chaotic period of Americas growth, accenting the Confederate South and European realm.

Set in the late 1800s, the novel follows Rachel, a strong-willed heroine of fair skin who is unaware of her bi-racial birth. Rachels southern prominent grand parents, unable to accept an ethnic scandal, force their daughter, Bluebell (Rachels mother), from their ancestral home.

Homeless and alone, Bluebell is attended by runaway slaves and succumbs giving birth in an abandoned cabin in the southern wilderness. Orphaned, Rachel is cared for by slaves fleeing their lawless owners in the turbulent south, a dangerous place for a small white child, where vigilante slave hunters are rampant and merciless. At age eight, Rachel is fostered by a caring clergy family who recognizes and helps develop her gifted voice.

The saga covers three years of action-packed historical and emotional drama. Amid catastrophic civil war repercussions, social and ethnic issues expose raw, painful, and unjust incidents, keeping readers anxiously alert. A Negro attorney, hired by Rachels family, unravels her mysterious birth, culminating in startling twists of fate.

As history affects us all, this compelling read forces self-judgment, guilt, praise, and determination and proves that no matter what ones beginning may be, through discipline, perseverance, and hard work, one can always reach the top! Never give up!
