Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Owner of a small African-American bookshop, Miss Cozy has an unique gift: Customers who walk through her door rarely leave without a book that speaks directly to their life. But when Josephine--"Fina"--and Ross arrive in search of an obscure, unpublished manuscript written by a slave woman, Miss Cozy knows that all her visions have been leading her to this magical day.

Yet Miss Cozy has no intention of selling the manuscript--no matter the price. So she offers Fina and Ross an alternative. They can read it together at the store. It was not what they hoped for, but their interest in the extraordinary love story is about as strong as their uncanny attraction for one another . . . one they both sense runs much deeper than a kiss. In the course of a few days, Fina and Ross realize that this powerful book has special meaning for the two of them--and that the path to their shared future may be linked to something that happened more than a century ago. . . .

Synopsis:

Sparks fly when Fina Chambers and Ross Buchannan reach for the same book of slave memories in an African-American bookstore. A first novel. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

Bertice Berry is a sociologist, comedian and inspirational speaker.

She lives in California, where she is raising her sister's three children.
