Overview

Dr. Jackson Phillips seemed to have everything going well for him until he receives a mysterious package from a past acquaintance. It has been said that when we don't confront our past, our past sometimes will come back to confront us. Jackson has let his past personal affairs go unattended for far too long and now he has been forced to face his fears. Will Jackson now confess to Denise why he left her on their big day? Can Jackson face his demons now that he realizes his life has taken a drastic change for the worst?

The clock is ticking, and Jackson only has a few more weeks before he ignites into his own self-destruction. This is a testament of how one man tries to overcome his inner demons and shattered past. Set in the upper class area of Strivers Row Harlem, New York, "Behind His Mask" is a story of betrayal, the power of love, and forgiveness.

Behind His Mask by D.J. Coleman "Behind His Mask" by D.J. Coleman takes us into the private struggle that one man faced, but brings us out with an experience that mankind seeks. This story is one of the debilitating effects that can occur when we feel societal and/or internal pressure to present ourselves as something we are not. Many of us, attempt to ignore, deny, reject, or totally abandon all that we truly are in an effort to become what we believe others expect us to be. The story of Dr. Jackson Phillips gives us a glimpse into the life of one man who finds out in time, once he is forced out from behind his mask, that those who mattered the most never required him to wear the mask in the first place. Dr. Phillips is successful, attractive, and living a life that many would envy. However, inwardly, he slowly becomes overwhelmed by his secret. He is forced to face his worst nightmare and his mask is stripped away in front of everyone that he loves. Overtaken by the pain, guilt, and shame he responses with a desperate act convinced that not even God would intervene in such a matter, but he is wrong. For me, the most profound moment while reading this book is not the revelation of the secret that Jackson is harboring, but the realization that acceptance, love, support, and forgiveness awaited him all long, but he had to encounter exposure before receiving them. This book is an easy read, but has a very poignant and powerful underlined theme which allows the reader to finish the last page with the revelation that no matter how dark the night, God [Light] is always near. We have only to recognize and acknowledge His presence. D.J. Coleman is also a Filmmaker who is in the process of turning his first book into a movie. Good for him. I am looking forward to watching this beautiful story of redemption, forgiveness, acceptance, and unconditional love on the Big Screen. ___ Dianne Rosena Jones is a Transformational Life Coach, Inspirational Teacher/Speaker, Co-Host of "Becoming Who I AM" on BlogTalk Radio, Founder of "Transforming Life Institute", and Author of the award-winning "Tragic Treasures: Discovering Spoils of War in the Midst of Tragedy" voted "BEST INSPIRATIONAL BOOK OF THE YEAR [2010]."

Behind His Mask is an exceptional piece of 21st century literature. Many people will be able to connect with the messages of love, forgiveness, and restoration. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a great read from start to finish.

Wow! Coleman presented enough to keep you interested, including the drama Jackson endured between freedom and restriction, between the spiritual and the material, between family and friends, and between one class of people and another. These conflicts alone, were substantial enough to create a life of disguise, that kept me reading until I finally thought that I had identified his secret, only to be amazed at the end. Love the book!

I have never written a review about a book before. So, this has to be a book of quality. The first pages had me captivated and I couldn't put it down. A sequel is definately warranted. If you are looking for a good book to read with an incredible message, this would a great book of choice. I am an advid reader that just loves to be taken away by characters in a book. The character, Jackson, manages to do just that.

The characters in this movie are real to me. I love the title, mostly because we all have a mask of some sort on in our lives. I love the way the story flows and the characters unfold before us. By the end of the book, I know and love them.

Absolutely awesome! I've read it all in a night. Every page made me want to read the following one, and another one, and one more. A kind of addiction! Furthermore, I've met the author of the book two years ago, he's such a wonderful person! :) He and his book deserve success! :)
