jackie-robinson-42Seventy years ago today, on April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson crossed the color line to play for Major League Baseball’s Brooklyn Dodgers. In my forthcoming novel, UNFORGIVABLE LOVE, my character Valiant Jackson is present in the stadium for that historic moment. When he witnesses Robinson’s classy behavior in the face of the abusive slurs rained upon him, Val begins to glimpse the notion that there might be a reason to be a good person in the world. How that notion grows and what happens to the rakish Val and the women in his life as a result is the story of UNFORGIVABLE LOVE. Find out the rest on September 26 when the novel hits the shelves from William Morrow HarperCollins. Pre-order today online or at your local bookstore.
