Greenwood and Archer by Marlene Banks


After the Riot, the sequel novel to SON OF A PREACHERMAN takes the reader back to Greenwood District in the 1920s during its restoration from the devastating race riot. Lives have been drastically changed since the riot and its citizens defiantly rebuild their piece of prosperity. Tulsa Oklahoma is as segregated as ever but doesn’t want the whole country watching it play out. Additional tension festers as prohibition brings Chicago gangsters to settle in the oil rich boomtown. Violent tragedy revisits the barely recuperating community demonstrating the Almighty hand of God having to once again untangle the mess men make.

Benny Freeman and Billy Ray Matthias navigate more hurdles in their relationship. Faith carried them through once but has their trust in God been tested to its human limit? Are they able to continue holding on to God…and each other?

I love the covers on both of these books. The sepia tones take me back in time. I think these books would be very thought-provoking. I would love to read both.
