January 29, 2018- A Time to Stand by Robert Whitlow

In a small Georgia town where racial tensions run high and lives are at stake, can one lawyer stand up for justice against the tide of prejudice on every side?

Adisa Johnson, a young African-American attorney, is living her dream of practicing law with a prestigious firm in downtown Atlanta. Then a split-second mistake changes the course of her career.

Left with no other options, Adisa returns to her hometown where a few days earlier a white police officer shot an unarmed black teen who is now lying comatose in the hospital.

Adisa is itching to jump into the fight as a special prosecutor, but feels pulled to do what she considers unthinkable—defend the officer.

As the court case unfolds, everyone in the small community must confront their own prejudices. Caught in the middle, Adisa also tries to chart her way along a path complicated by her budding relationship with a charismatic young preacher who leads the local movement demanding the police officer answer for his crime.

This highly relevant and gripping novel challenges us to ask what it means to forgive while seeking justice and to pursue reconciliation while loving others as ourselves.

Allison, to answer your additional questions- this book was just released in November, so this will be the first time everyone is reading it.  And there is never a cost to have your book signed! :)  I am so happy you are enjoying the story!  It is certainly one of my favorite book by Rachel!

Allison,  when an author comes to the group, we pretty much give them control of the meeting to let them talk about the process of writing the book.  You can ask questions and talk about what you enjoyed about the book.  Be prepared to find out the ending if you haven't read the entire story!  It's a pretty laid back evening- we just like to get together and chat.  Rachel Hauck will be available to sign your book after the discussion if you would like.
