On Mother’s Day, 1960, after meeting MLK in Atlanta, Desiree—the title of Book One—and the Freedom Riders are attacked by the Klan in Anniston, AL. Did she faint, or die and return? Is she the reason an elderly Black vet of WWII kills himself? Answers are revealed and rejected. Treatments fail, years pass, desperation sets in. Then, Desiree meets a young minister returning from Egypt with spiritual enlightenment he garnered from an ancient scribe of God’s philosophy.
