The intense days leading up to the Tulsa Race Riots form the backdrop to this faith-fueled historical romance. Billy Ray Matthias and Benny Freeman live in the wealthy Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma. It’s 1920, and this African-American enclave is rocked by racial tension—which only gets worse when the White Glove Society initiates a wave of terror.
Billy Ray, the pastor’s son, has fallen hard for Benny, whose family made a fortune in oil. But Benny’s loved and lost before, and she doesn’t feel ready to risk her heart again. Meanwhile, a newspaper’s reckless accusation ignites flames of hatred that could burn the Greenwood district to the ground. Can Billy Ray and Benny find the strength in God—and in each other—to persevere?
