Janelle Roy is a Beautiful, fiercely determined African-American nurse in a time of bitterly contested change in America and fiery conflict abroad. The year is 1943, and Janelle has defied the prejudice of the white medical establishment by working in prestigious private practice. But when a wealthy old woman in her care dies, Janelle no longer can go it alone to save her career. She needs the help of Dalton Graham, a brilliant white civil rights lawyer. In a legal battle that will test her courage and scar her reputation no matter what the verdict, she finds herself fighting not only for her future but against a dangerous attraction she has for this man.Because everyone is needed for the war effort, black fighter pilots are training in Tuskegee, Alabama, and black nurses are to be employed there. Janelle makes the long journey from Ohio to the still rigidly segregated South - and discovers both the promise and the peril of being on the crest of change that is gaining momentum in the nation.In the passionate arms of Lance Fuller, a black fighter pilot and a man of dazzling charm, she overcomes her suspicions of secrets he will not reveal. And in the face of the disaster that strikes when her headstrong brother Perry is accused by the army of murder, she again must put her trust in Dalton Graham despite the forbidden feelings that flare between them.Sweeping from the sleet-covered streets of Ohio to the red clay of Alabama to the skies over North Africa, with a memorable heroine and superbly drawn characters, Wild Embers brings to life a piece of our American past that never should be forgotten. In interweaving vividly imagined people with actual watershed historical events, Anita Richmond Bunkley again shows herself to be a storyteller of irresistible strength and artistry.show more
