FREE KINDLE E-BOOK ALERT: Stronghome by Lee A. Cummings
Stronghome by Lee A. Cummings
The Stronghomes are admired by few, loved by fewer, and despised by many. Their properties make their wealth and position visible to everyone, but no one outside the family knows exactly how they managed to attain so much while many around them have so little. And while they are clearly different from their peers in some way, exactly how they are different remains a mystery.
Little, however, is a Stronghome, and has been raised in the family tradition, with the heavy, constant knowledge that his African ancestors never lived in the bondage for which they had been brought to the The New World. Instead the tribe escaped, and settled in a cold, hidden region, where they thrived not only in isolation, but after slavery had been abolished. And with survival achieved, they charged themselves and their offspring with a great purpose – to aid the other African descendants in the nation they were forced to adopt.
The family mission always felt noble to Little, but his father’s disappointment after sharing their secret legacy with a skeptical long-time associate gives way to a philosophical shift. The goals become less manageable, and the objectives more aggressive, even as their already-scorned reputation falls further, and Little becomes a more visible object of hate among his peers. But there is more than one path to be followed, and unforeseen knowledge and wisdom will guide Little as he takes hold of his own beliefs about family, culture, purpose, and what it really means to be a Stronghome.
