About this product
- DescriptionWhen brilliant, charming Henry Adam Johnson, Jr., an Afro-American student, wins a $5,000,000 lottery his senior year of college, the popular valedictorian has courage to pursue a life changing path for his future and his quest for the hand of socialite Mary Mathews, a Caucasian fellow senior who has befriended him during his senior year. In the turbulence of the 1960's such a union was unimaginable, especially in the south. The results of the anuncement of this couple's intentions, and their journey toward their goals make up the meat of this fast paced tale of determination, love, terrifying events, and the happiness and sadness that make up life's experiences. This is a book of historical fiction. It does, however, reflect the attitudes of many Americans regarding inter-racial relationships and the lengths they would go in expressing their disdain of a race of people who have fought many years for equal rights. Destiny is a small velette that packs many punches.
