“In an exciting historical whodunit, a young black man is murdered and even though suspects abound, no one is trying too hard to find his killer”
The novel begins as “The Great War” is coming to an end. As Robert Parker’s body is being lowered into the grave, Herman Camm introduces himself to the mourning family. He is beady-eyed, small framed, well dressed man with a mysterious stare-and is about to drastically change the lives of three women: Mae Lou Parker; her daughter Carrie, and Pearl Brown.
On Christmas Eve in Jefferson County, Virginia, trouble arrives when Carrie reveals a disturbing secret that will haunt and change their lives forever. Mae Lou is fed up with Herman spending time with other women and she goes to confront him. Everybody wants a part of him, including Willie; however, the tables are turned slightly when Willie ends up with a gun pointing directly at him.
All of the stories converge when Herman is found dead from a gunshot wound. There are many people Herman has offended. And all three women are suspects in his murder. An investigation is launched. But no one really cares, including the police. “Black Berry Days of Summer ” is a brilliantly crafted story of family secretes, complexity and the courage of forgiveness.
