A Time To Stand

    Robert Whitlow’s A Time to Stand explores racism and the way it is tearing apart our communities across the country. In an all too familiar scenario pitting law enforcement against the communities they defend and protect, where is the justice? Where is the hope? When an African American lawyer is tapped to defend a Caucasian cop accused of shooting an African American teen, tensions grow in a Georgia community. This highly relevant and gripping novel challenges us to ask what it means to forgive while seeking justice, to pursue reconciliation while loving others as ourselves.

    “Whitlow writes a fast-paced legal suspense with amazing characters… There are twists and turns throughout, and a number of unexpected surprises to heighten the suspense. Whitlow is an amazing writer and he touches upon delicate topics with grit and respect.” – RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

    “A nice option for book groups, Christy Award winner Whitlow’s (The Witnesses) timely story shines a spotlight on prejudice, race, and the pursuit of justice in a world bent on blind revenge. Fans of Greg Iles’s Natchez Burning will find this just as – compelling if not more so.” – Library Journal (starred review)

    “Whitlow (A House Divided) gives a powerful message about the need for people of all colors and backgrounds to come together in times of trouble…” – Publishers Weekly
