The Hidden Keeper
By Alexa OBrien Book 3
Really poor grammar and punctuation...very distracting...if one is going to write books, one should, at the bare minimum, know when to use "me" or "I".... So simple, actually....
I enjoyed the concept. It was different and had a lot of potential. Desperately needed editing. A lot of grammatical errors and wrong words (ie- conscious used instead of conscience) but enjoyed it just the same. Will read the next one in the series.
I loved this book. I just couldn't put it down. Can't wait for the second one to come out. Girl you are a great writer. I think I would read book you write. I loved this book.
Sharon Davies It was among the most notorious criminal cases of its day. On August 11, 1921, in Birmingham, Alabama, a Methodist minister named Edwin Stephenson shot and killed a Catholic priest, James Coyle, in broad daylight and in front of numerous witnesses. The killer's motive? The priest had married Stephenson's eighteen-year-old daughter Ruth to Pedro Gussman, a Puerto Rican migrant and practicing Catholic.
Sharon Davies's Rising Road resurrects the murder of Father Coyle and the trial of his killer. As Davies reveals with novelistic richness, Stephenson's crime laid bare the most potent bigotries of the age: a hatred not only of blacks, but of Catholics and "foreigners" as well. In one of the case's most unexpected turns, the minister hired future U.S. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black to lead his defense. Though regarded later in life as a civil rights champion, in 1921 Black was just months away from donning the robes of the Ku Klux Klan, the secret order that financed Stephenson's defense. Entering a plea of temporary insanity, Black defended the minister on claims that the Catholics had robbed Ruth away from her true Protestant faith, and that her Puerto Rican husband was actually black.
Placing the story in social and historical context, Davies brings this heinous crime and its aftermath back to life, in a brilliant and engrossing examination of the wages of prejudice and a trial that shook the nation at the height of Jim Crow.
"Davies takes us deep into the dark heart of the Jim Crow South, where she uncovers a searing story of love, faith, bigotry and violence. Rising Road is a history so powerful, so compelling it stays with you long after you've finished its final page."
--Kevin Boyle, author of the National Book Award-winning Arc of Justice
"This gripping history...has all the makings of a Hollywood movie. Drama aside, Rising Road also happens to be a fine work of history."
--History News Network
Mike Davies & Sharon Davies The ancient market town of Rayleigh is rich in both its history and in the historians who have told the tale. Limelight Lantern lectures were first shown in 1884, when the population was just over 1,000, the railway had not yet arrived, and the roads were at best comprised of compacted earth with granite chippings and had no drainage. That tradition continues today as historians continue to explore Rayleigh through slideshows, lectures and books. During the ensuing 128 years, the stories of the motte and bailey castle, the martyrs burnt at the stake, the windmills, and the rapid development once the railway arrived in 1889 have not lost their fascination. The photographs in this book, most of which have not been seen in print before, present Rayleigh's rich and varied heritage in vivid detail, from its origins as a small agricultural village to the thriving town of today.
