Down Home Blues

“Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.” Eden, Arkansas is a town you are from, not move to. But when divorce, foreclosure, domestic violence, and an all-expense paid trip (also called prison) disrupt the Washington siblings perfectly planned lives, they end up back down home. Instead of serenity, sibling rivalries, divided loyalties and money squabbles resurface. Even the good news, that there may be natural gas on their father s land, causes conflict. When their father, C.W. Washington, one of the largest landowners in the county, announces his engagement, barely six months after his wife s death, his daughters fear Viagra is clouding his judgement (his sons say go for it). Homemade preserves and family dinners are welcome by-products of the move down home. Unfortunately, family members aren t always singing in the same key. But just a few notes can switch a gloomy blues tune to the soundtrack for a good time. What song will the Washingtons play?

Forty Acres

Forty Acres is a family saga, love story and history lesson rolled into one. While Forty Acres is fiction, the subject matter is a real. African American land ownership declined by ninety-five percent in the twentieth century. Migration, infighting, discriminatory lending practices and lack of estate planning have all contributed to this decline. Can the Washington family avert their attention from their individual dramas of infidelity, gambling and jealousy long enough to keep their land from vanishing?

The title, Forty Acres is based on the broken promise of “forty acres and a mule”. But was there really a promise? Who made the promise and why was it not fulfilled? These questions are answered in the Appendix, which contains a history lesson and the facts about “forty acres and a mule”. This is a book that entertains and informs.
