Almost overnight, Symone has been elevated from the ghettos and drug-filled corridors of her neighborhood project to a lovely house on a hill. But instead of reveling in the new opportunities that await, a caramel "Pass Blanc" female adopted by a white and respectable couple, Symone finds herself and others haunted by questions that her past and her mother's indiscretions bring to mind. Now, years later, she has come back to what was once her adopted home to put her demons to rest.
RISING is a contemporary African-American romance that entices the reader to take a much-needed trip down a path of self-discovery. It becomes a novel of exploration, rather than one of hot, deeply rooted sensual romance. (Jan., 224 pp., $10.95)
