From the #1 "Essence "bestselling and award-winning author Victoria Christopher Murray comes "Stand Your Ground," a new novel about two women who are faced with the same tragedy.
A black teenage boy is dead. A white man shot him. Was he standing his ground or was it murder?
Janice Johnson is living every black mother's nightmare. Her seventeen-year-old son was murdered and the shooter has not been arrested. Can the D.A. and the police be trusted to investigate and do the right thing? Should Janice take advantage of the public outcry and join her husband alongside the angry protestors who are out for revenge?
Meredith Spencer is married to the man accused of the killing and she sees her husband and the situation with far more clarity than anyone realizes. What she knows could blow the case wide open, but what will that mean for her life and that of her son? Will she have the courage to come forward in time so that justice can be done?
#1 national bestselling and award-winning author Victoria Christopher Murray's "Stand Your Ground" is a pulse-pounding meditation on race, motherhood, marriage, and vigilante justice that will have readers spellbound until its shocking end.
Murray takes an interesting look at the affects of today's unfortunate epidemic: the killing of unarmed young, black men. This book takes the reader into the world of those that we do not often see, which is the perspective of these life-altering events from the women's point of view as well as the strain that it can put on relationships. Highly recommended read. Ivy Valentine Pate, WIld Ivy Publishing on 28th Sep 2015
