The Fiery Cross Book Description:

___________________________________ THE FIFTH NOVEL IN THE BESTSELLING OUTLANDER SERIES Now a major TV series 1771: the Colony of North Carolina stands in an uneasy balance, with the rich, colonial aristocracy on one side and the struggling pioneers of the backcountry on the other. Between them stands Jamie Fraser, a man of honour, a man of worth. Exiled from his beloved Scotland, he is at last possessed of the land he has longed for. By his side his extraordinary wife, Claire, a woman out of time and out of place, blessed with the uneasy gift of the knowledge of what is to come. In the past, that knowledge has brought both danger and deliverance to Jamie and Claire. Now it could be a flickering torch that will light their way through the perilous years ahead - or might ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes. ___________________________________ The Fiery Cross is by turns poignant, page-turning, meticulous in its historical detail and searingly passionate. The Outlander series begins with Outlander.

Lighting the Fiery Cross Book Description:

This historical novel, although fictional, is based on true events. From 1915 to 1920, the United States was challenged by a societal struggle to maintain traditional values while simultaneously embracing modernism. The introduction of prohibition, women’s suffrage, the great world war, increased migration, and the Spanish Flu, was met with increased bias and religious opposition, most notably from the dangerous hate group, the Ku Klux Klan. The story begins with two inseparable young friends, Rose from a wealthy and loving Catholic family, and Maybelle from an impoverished dysfunctional Protestant family. As tragedy forces the best friends apart their paths diverge, causing the distance between them to grow wider. Rose becomes a lawyer and social crusader, while Maybelle is led down increasingly darker avenues, eventually finding opportunity within the KKK to gain authority and prosperity for herself. When the two finally meet again, will their bonds forged in childhood innocence be strong enough to overcome their differences, or will they find themselves at a crossroad? The first book in The Klanswoman Trilogy, Lighting the Fiery Cross, examines the Klan’s tribalistic nature as they worked in Oregon to spread their message and increase their memberships. When women began joining the Klan, it made the KKK agenda more socially acceptable and allowed them to disguise their true motivations of hatred and greed behind masks of righteousness. Their guarantee of safety and prosperity quickly became a draw to those who felt disenfranchised, threatened, or alone in a world that was changing too rapidly.

A Long Dark Night Book Description:

For a brief time following the end of the U.S. Civil War, American political leaders had an opportunity—slim, to be sure, but not beyond the realm of possibility—to remake society so that black Americans and other persons of color could enjoy equal opportunity in civil and political life. It was not to be. With each passing year after the war—and especially after Reconstruction ended during the 1870s—American society witnessed the evolution of a new white republic as national leaders abandoned the promise of Reconstruction and justified their racial biases based on political, economic, social, and religious values that supplanted the old North-South/slavery-abolitionist schism of the antebellum era. A Long Dark Night provides a sweeping history of this too often overlooked period of African American history that followed the collapse of Reconstruction—from the beginnings of legal segregation through the end of World War II. Michael J. Martinez argues that the 1880s ushered in the dark night of the American Negro—a night so dark and so long that the better part of a century would elapse before sunlight broke through. Combining both a “top down” perspective on crucial political issues and public policy decisions as well as a “bottom up” discussion of the lives of black and white Americans between the 1880s and the 1940s, A Long Dark Night will be of interest to all readers seeking to better understand this crucial era that continues to resonate throughout American life today.
