The Long Black Veil

A friend of mine, with her sister, have written a very interesting novel that I want to see published!   She is a phenomenal person and fantastic writer.  Here is a description...

The Long Black Veil

Jeannine DeLine and Bobbi L'Huillier

A drifter, a gangster, an interracial affair, and a little girl coming of age reveal the darker side of Camelot in the summer of 1963.
A drifter who has spent the last decade running from commitments, southerner Jamie Delacroix finds himself stranded in a small Northern town where an African-American musician, Calvin Lewis, comes to Jamie’s aid. Calvin introduces him to Harry Novotny, a small-time gangster with a respectable business front; Harry’s bitter wife, Eve, who retains a friendship with Calvin since childhood; and Jane, the Novotnys’ bright, lonely 12-year-old.

As he wrestles with his past and his future, Jamie is grateful for the unlikely friendships he forms with Jane and Calvin—until he stumbles upon the black man’s illicit love affair with Eve. As racial tensions in the town build toward an explosion, Jamie's discovery threatens to destroy Jane's family and costs Calvin his life.
