Shannon & Elm has acquired William T. Delamar's Novel, The Brother Voice
Freedom or Love - Which Shall Prevail?
About the book
During the Civil War the country was torn asunder, but so were families--right down to twins, Hol and Sel, who were inseparable since conception. With the ability to hear each other's thoughts and actually feel one another emotionally and physically, the only thing they did not share was their opinions of the war.
Their best friend, Cora Dee, was in love with them both. Unable to choose whom to marry, her father told her God would help guide her when the time came; little did either of them dream of how that final choice would be made. Hol sided with the Confederacy; loyal to the South although he could not decide if slavery was right or wrong. Sel knew the Union was doomed, if there was a permanent split, and that all men were created equal. His choice was for God, country and Cora Dee, loving them with all his being.
Then there's what Old No, an ancient black man who has always been, and what he said. His granddaughter, Minnie Lou has bewitched Hol, and a forbidden love, due to fear, prejudice, and racial laws in a time of death and destruction, is consummated.
Until the end, the brother voice prevails.
