About the Book
Fatal Promises is a ficticious story with real-life overtones that allude to the ills of society in the historical South. An 18-year-old colored boy becomes despondent with the lack of opportunities in a small South Georgia town, so he migrates to New York, hoping for a better life. A six-year-old colored boy is emotionally wounded when his father abandons his mother with no means of support. He vows always to care for his family, if he ever has one. A young, rich southern belle becomes intimate with her employee, whom she vows to love forever, but fate intervenes. A wealthy elderly lady, the sole survivor of her family, hires two young mulattos, promising to defray the cost of their education if they will work in her home for a year. She is very fond of them, but her reward is much greater than her promise.
Fatal Promises is about love, hate, wealth, poverty, good, evil, commitment and success. It is a story that will capture your attention and your heart.
