Post Newly Released: "The Kiss" looking for attention!
I speak to social justice of every nature when I am called to take a stand to make this a kinder, more loving world. The Kiss is such a story...

It is another compelling novel by Sharon Hart Strickland. Readers will find a story where the plot builds, layer upon layer, to a dramatic closing uniquely appropriate for each of the characters. In this book, Strickland proves she can address a difficult issue; her vivid descriptions bring characters to life and helps them deal with bigotry and hatred; as fictionalized historical events move to an inevitable conclusion. Strickland’s writing style is both eloquent and earthy. Her vocabulary is extensive, and she chooses words as skillfully as any artist chooses colors from a pallet. The effect—although painful to read—is writing that is beautiful and expressive.

Racial strife never brings comfort; reading about it is painful, yet this historical novel by Strickland was impossible to put down!

If you remember segregated Little Rock High Schools, where the civil rights movement rocked the social underpinnings of a nation, you may also be reminded that over fifty years later, we are forced to recognize the past is never gone; its events continue to probe ugly, ghostly fingers into our present minds. Social justice waxes and wanes; at many levels self-satisfied notions about civil order and structure continue to raise their nasty heads. Only when we agree to face social justice and take a stand for it, as Strickland has in writing The Kiss, is there any hope of removing hate, hurt, pain, brutality.
