Acerca de


In a saga of greed, obession, passion, and revenge, the fates of a beautiful African-American woman and two African-American families become entwined with the discovery of the legendary Mexia oil field

From Publishers Weekly:

Melodrama overpowers effectively researched background material in this commercial first novel about African Americans in Texas. Set in the early 1900s, the narrative offers a hearty depiction of the struggle of black landowners to survive difficult economic conditions. Orphaned Leela Brannon Alexander goes from her home in Fort Worth to be raised by her aunt and uncle in Mexia. She marries workaholic, miserly T.J. Wilder, proprietor of Rioluces, the region's most prosperous melon farm, on which his neglected mansion is located. T.J. is the son of mean-mouthed Hattie Logan, a woman who partied hard in her youth, once with Leela's father. Leela gets inklings of future trouble on her wedding day, on which she meets Hattie and T.J.'s half brother Carey, a handsome gambler and wastrel. A rift between the brothers is exacerbated when Carey is caught seducing Leela and T.J. forces Carey out of town at gunpoint. When Carey returns eight years later, T.J. is dead, oil has been discovered on Rioluces Ranch, and Leela is in love again. Arson, gunplay and other events ensue, and soon Leela is on trial for murder. Bunkley has done a service by chronicling black contributions to a turbulent era in Texas history, but her lushly told story of love, hate and greed will appeal mainly to fans of historical romance. Literary Guild selection.
