Almost Victory

by Joy Stephens




Almost Victory is a fictional story of Beri Anderson�s struggle to cope with and overcome the many challenges she is confronted with as a young girl. Already struggling with faith and trust because a desperate prayer to God appeared unanswered, it is impossible for her to make sense of the senseless killing of her brother by a sheriff with ulterior motives and the wrongful imprisonment of another. Initially Beri is unimpressed with the very handsome Calvin Wise who vigorously pursues her and is finally able to earn her love but he unwittingly ends up hurting her and betraying her trust. Despite her own problems Beri goes out of her way to befriend a troubled Mary Helen McElroy a classmate and neighbor with serious emotional problems that gradually spirals dangerously out of control and ultimately exposes deceptions, lies and horrors that nearly destroys a family and paralyzes an entire community.

Almost Victory is a good read. The storytelling opens a world where family love and family violence exists side-by-side. Joy Stephens has created a novel that is brimming with honesty, romance and the turbulence of being a black person in rural Georgia in the early fifties & sixties. She has pulled in dramatic nuggets from her personal experiences and knowledge of growing up in rural Georgia. Powerful and filled with page turning excitement, Stephens’s debut book is truly an excellent story that touches the heart. You will want share it and read it again
