SORT BY Relevancy
B. Berry has created some amazing characters in Clothesline Blues. They display the emotions
we have all felt from time to time; love, passion, hate. The sisterhood that is shown between
neighbors Hilda and Pearl is deeply human, respectful, trusting and something we all want in our lives. Ms. Berry's backdrop of the turbulent sixties comes to the forefront of the page time and again, enriching the humanity of those who lived through it, while opening the eyes of a new generation to what really occurred during the civil rights era. This novel is one that should be required reading in schools and is destined for the best-sellers list.
Bloody Sunday was an event in history that rocked the world as black people fought for the
right to vote in America on the fringes of the Jim Crow Era. Hilda and Frank lived together in a small New England town. The couple had been relatively happy for many years, but when Frank’s discontentment caused him to become mean and abusive, Hilda knew it was time to make a major change in her life. She yielded to the advances of a younger man who was head of a chapter of the Black Movement Coalition. Hilda was determined to be with him and after many sleepless nights, she came up with a solution – she would get rid of Frank. She enlisted the help of Pearl, her best friend and neighbor. Although Pearl battled her own demons, she vowed to stick by her friend…no matter what. Bonded by secrets, lies and murder, it’s hard to imagine two women will find the peace and happiness they so desperately seek...or is it?
Mary E., and her team welcome B. Berry to ArtSees Diner Radio, Author's Corner. Berry is celebrating the release of an outstanding new release, "Clothesline Blues."
In addition to CLOTHESLINE BLUES, B. Berry has written two murder mysteries, using Boston, Massachusetts as the backdrop. COLD CRAZY is a story of a young beautiful nurse who has been brutally and senselessly murdered. COLD SERIAL is about a serial killer who is terrorizing young women.
Although B. Berry prefers to write about murder, her first book, EVEN NUMBERS is a story of a young girl who was molested by her father and then ultimately raised by him. She would like to keep the subject of child molestation and child rape in the forefront of our minds.
