Overview
When her son is in trouble, a heartbroken mother finds the courage and faith to save him, in ReShonda Tate Billingsley s powerful family drama a novel as timely as today s headlines.
The breaking TV news rocks Jasper, Texas, to the core: a white police officer is fatally shot in a scuffle with three black youths and a cellphone video captures Jamal Jones, the sixteen-year-old son of esteemed Reverend Elton Jones, escalating the tragic encounter. Now, as the national spotlight shines on a town already rife with racial tension, Jamal is a murder suspect on the run. And all of Jasper even the Reverend s congregation rushes to judge the boy they thought they knew.
But Gloria Jones knows her son best, and she races to find Jamal before the law does to the outrage of her workaholic husband. Once she finds him, she has to decide whether to turn him in or help him run. With ruthless prosecutor and Houston mayoral candidate Kay Christensen hungering to put another young thug behind bars, Gloria will face her biggest battle yet. And when long-hidden secrets and shocking lies come to light, throwing Jamal s case and his destiny into a tailspin, all Gloria can do is pray that the truth and a mother s unconditional love will be enough to redeem the mistakes of the past and ultimately, save her son."
