Overview

The twists and turns in A Place in Time are strung together by an unsolved crime, romance and divine providence. It unfolds against a background of significant African American historical events in Chicago, Illinois, and Sacramento, California.

Twenty-four-year-old Gloria Rene’ Johnson, a grade school teacher, shares a home with her witty mother, Dorothy. Gloria becomes involved in a relationship with Detective Matthew Samuels – forcing her to face personal, unresolved issues.

Twenty-two-year-old Rachael Anne Owens, a college student, lives with her family. She’s politically active and volunteers to work with kids at her church. Like most young people, she’s focused on the here and now.

Rachael meets Gloria the weekend before Thanksgiving. When the two women’s paths cross unexpectedly, strange thing begin to happen. Rachael must rely on Gloria and her friends to help her out of a dilemma. Rachael’s dilemma becomes challenging and mysterious. There is a deep spiritual connection binding Rachael and Gloria together—deeper than either of them suspect. An underlying theme of this story is miracles can happen and love never dies.

This rating and review was given to me by an author. I am submitting it per her request. ********************************************************************************************************** This delightful novel intertwines the lives of two young women who are marking decisions which will accept their future. The African American women separated by decades and unknown to each other are the heart and soul of this spiritual, romantic and mysterious adventure. This quick read supplies information on the Black Experience in an appealing, interesting and thought provoking manner. The characters are fully formed and informative to where the reader wishes they could sit down and have afternoon tea or lunch with them. A book to add, not only to your summer reading list, but for winter nights curled up under a wool blanket as it rains outside. Highly recommended.
