Description Place Called Jubilee by Timothy J. Garrett

Deception, witchcraft, and the secrets of a long-dead former slave churn the life of ambitious young clergyman Coleman Hightower – even as fear, bombings, and riots rock the nation. Historical novel A PLACE CALLED JUBILEE tells Coleman’s story as he leaves his mountain home and arrives in Washington D.C. in 1961 as the Civil Rights movement explodes across America. Coleman’s plans for a prestigious life are torn apart by his forbidden longing for beautiful and fiery activist Rosalee. His search for meaning turns into a desperate journey that takes him and the woman of his dreams all the way to Jubilee, Alabama – a place where intrigue, betrayal, and murder combine to make Coleman wonder if he will win Rosalee’s love or even leave the tiny town alive.

Garrett My Take: This book was historical fiction but not like any historical fiction I have read before. This takes place starting shortly after JFK's swearing in and happens in several different time periods. The main character is Coleman who is a white clergy that meets a black woman named Rosalee when he needs help. He falls in love with her which is problematic at the time of history that it is. The story is very interesting and I enjoyed it very much and I would recommend it if you like historical fiction.
