In the mixed days of happiness and sadness, life and death, an African-American mother guides her children to avoid the pitfalls of their hardship environment and leap over the systematic roadblocks that confine many to juvenile delinquency.

This riveting tale of faith and perseverance leads to intrigue when her spiritually inclined and ambitious son, Derrick, attempts to build a civic-minded conglomerate that undercuts the retail and gas prices set by a group of avaricious businessmen led by the narcissistic and callous, Erich Hornsby.

Surrounded by fierce opposition that includes people of his race, can Derrick prevail against the powers that be? And if so, how?

This debut novel by Indie Author, Neal Owens, is God-centered adult/literary fiction that engages the reader with drama, familial love, romance, suspense, and philosophy.

About the Author

Born and raised in Washington, DC, I wrote my first story in the fifth grade, but didn't consider writing a profession as I pondered on career choices. After 33 years of service to at-risk youth and 23 years of non-profit management, I decided to pursue my passion. By faith, I left the workforce and devoted five years to complete my debut novel, Mirrors of Life. During that time, I took online novel courses and joined writing communities to learn the technical aspects of writing to perfect my craft. I received first place for a short story contest and recognition for other projects. My experiences in life, which includes my college courses in Social Problems and Human Behavior, prepared me to write this novel.
