It was a pleasure speaking with National Bestselling, and Award-winning author, Victoria Christopher Murray this evening. She has lots going on. In addition to being a novelist, Victoria is also a keynote speaker, offers coaching lessons, and is an entrepreneur. Not one to shy away from hot topics, high drama, and thrilling storylines, 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. This new novel centers on two women who are faced with the same tragedy.
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 protesters 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?
Stand Your Ground is a pulse-pounding meditation on race, motherhood, marriage, and vigilante justice that will have readers spellbound until its shocking end.
