Readers, you'll definitely want to tune in this Thursday, August 6th at 6pm EST! My guest will be National Bestselling, and Award-Winning Author, Victoria Christopher Murray. Even as she was taking an unlikely path to her destination, Victoria Christopher Murray always knew she would become an author. In fact, after spending ten years in Corporate America, she never lost the dream to write and when the “bug” hit her again in 1997, she answered the call. Her latest novel, Stand Your Ground, centers on two women forced to grapple with their faith and their belief in the justice system when they become involved in a high-stakes murder trial.
A black teenage boy is dead. A white man shot him. Was he standing his ground or was it murder?
Janice Johnson is living every black mother’s nightmare. Her seventeen-year-old son was murdered and the shooter has not been arrested. Can the D.A. and the police be trusted to investigate and do the right thing? Should Janice take advantage of the public outcry and join her husband alongside the angry protestors who are out for revenge?
Meredith Spencer is married to the man accused of the killing and she sees her husband and the situation with far more clarity than anyone realizes. What she knows could blow the case wide open, but what will that mean for her life and that of her son? Will she have the courage to come forward in time so that justice can be done?
#1 national bestselling and award-winning author Victoria Christopher Murray’s Stand Your Ground is a pulse-pounding meditation on race, motherhood, marriage, and vigilante justice that will have readers spellbound until its shocking end.
