Product description

Review

"Foster, one of the brightest lights of evangelical fiction, turns in a nuanced, often amusing tale."--John Mort, Starred Review from American Library Association

"The name Sharon Ewell Foster is fast becoming synonymous with quality African American inspirational fiction."--Pam Perry, Ministry Marketing Solutions

The Resurrection of Nat Turner, Part 2: The Testimony

"Every once in a while a book is published that shakes the very foundation about what you believen about an historical figure like Alex Haley's Autobiography of Malcolm X. These books are rare since they must be meticulously research and well-written. The Resurrection of Nat Turner, Part 2 belongs in this category. This is an extraordinary book because Sharon Ewell Foster has done something which has never been done--unearthed the truth about Nat Turner, rather than rehash and revisit the lies and distortions surrounding one of the most important people in American history. This is a liberating book, both psychologically and historically. Read it, read again and then pass it on to someone who thinks they know who the real Nat Turner is."--Raymond A. Winbush, author of Belinda's Petition, A Concise History of Reparations for the TransAtlantic Slave Trade

"Having been a longtime fan of Sharon Ewell Foster, The Resurrection of Nat Turner still knocked my socks off! To me, her previous works were all leading up to these momentous novels. In all her stories Foster dares to tell the truth, and The Witnesses and The Testimony are no exception. More than that, they dare to expose the comfortable lies we've grown accustomed to."--Neta Jackson, author of The Yada Yada Prayer Group and House of Hope novels

"Sharon Ewell Foster merges little-known history with fiction to pen another amazing novel with Abraham's Well. . . . [It] is hard to put down. Definitely, one of the best reads of the year!"--Victoria Christopher Murray, author of Temptation and Truth Be Told

"A rhapsody in prose. It is an intriguing look back that also speaks loudly to the times we live in. For a religious novel to simmer in the African American religious tradition, yet carry a universal message is a rarity. Readers will be thankful for this rare and splendid work of love, faith, and art." --Dr. Barbara Reynolds, Reynolds News Service, author, commentator, columnist

"Readers who loved Foster's surprise hit, Passing by Samaria, will enjoy this second novel . . . This book is one more piece of evidence that Christian publishers are getting serious about producing literary fiction. Foster's prose is often evocative and eloquent . . . a rewarding read from an author to watch." --Publishers Weekly

"Sharon Ewell Foster is a beautiful fresh voice in today's world of fiction. Her compelling stories draw us to a place where we somehow feel we belong, a place we want to visit again and again and again."--Karen Kingsbury, author of One Tuesday Morning

Passing by Samaria

"A sensitive, thoughtful look at a revolutionary time in American history. Foster's characters are unforgettable; full of life and unhesitatingly charming, they drive this powerful book."--Kweisi Mfume, former NAACP President and CEO

Ain't No River

"Foster's ears and pen are tuned to the rhythm and pace of small-town African American life, from the barbershop to the beauty parlor, from the church to the basketball court, and her dialogue sparkles with a memorable concreteness." --Andy Crouch, Christianity Today
