Seeking Salamanca Mitchell : A Novel
Benjamin Baker knew love for the second time when his eyes met Salamanca Mitchell's. The first time was at age eleven, when he'd sat down at a piano to play his first original composition. But both of those loves are nearly destroyed when he goes to work for Alfonse Mitchell, Salamanca's father and a prominent soul-food restaurant owner with a secret criminal life.Seduced by the lure of easy money, Ben joins Mitchell's den of thieves, only to earn seven years in prison when the burglary ring falls apart. As his singing group goes on to stardom without him, and Salamanca struggles to raise Ben's daughter while on the run from her own father, he can only dream of a waiting family just beyond prison's doors. Ben and Salamanca must each travel different roads to get back to each other, fighting against their own fears and Alfonse Mitchell, the most tenacious enemy of all.
