Overview

Joshua's Closet by Melody Porter

Roni Somers a young African American woman from Harlem, New York is attending college in North Carolina. She dreams of completing her master's degree and traveling to Egypt to study ancient hieroglyphics. During her last semester in college, she receives a tutoring assignment with Ryan Grant. Ryan comes from the rural area of Virginia on a baseball scholarship. His dream of becoming an architect is in jeopardy if he doesn't pass a class in African American history.

When Professor Lincoln assigns him a tutor, he finds out Roni is a beautiful woman and not the male tutor he had been expecting. Roni thought her student would be just another dumb jock only to be captivated by his boyish charm and mesmerizing green eyes. Their initial meeting is strained by misunderstandings and racial and cultural differences, but as they spend time together, their hearts begin to speak.

After they allow their love to take the lead, Roni finds out Ryan is already engaged. This devastates her separating them for over four years. When a job interview takes Ryan to New York, he sees Roni getting off the elevator and knows his love for her never died. He wants to explain his former engagement to try to rebuild their relationship only to find Roni has some secrets of her own.

Even though their love for each other is stronger, they are faced with the obstacles of an interracial relationship. Some believe that races shouldn't mix and that both would be happier with someone that looks like them. Little do they know, Roni and Ryan share a soul that neither time nor space can separate.
