“TRIUMPH, a novel of the Human Spirit” weaves together three vivid storylines featuring two friends of different races defying the odds of 1950s bigotry. The novel’s epic sweep sends you through the Louisiana Swamps to New Orleans, St. Louis, and Texas. Opening in 1903, two children are ripped from their homes—one abducted by a secretive voodoo sect; the other presented to a former Texas Ranger as part of a life-crushing plea for help. Their uncertain fates set in motion a series of events that reverberates decades later. A family saga that resonates throughout centuries of American history to illuminate some of the central questions of our time, dramatizing who we are, how we got here, and where the better angels of our nature impel us to go.
