TARP TOWN U S - The Recession That Saved America
The United States experienced the emergence of an economic crisis in the last quarter of 2008 that was the worst since the Great Depression. It quickly became evident that the cause of this financial meltdown was a perfect storm of multiple factors including irresponsibility, greed and lax oversight. Some hardworking citizens found themselves living in foreclosure riddled neighborhoods and tent cities that the author has labeled - TARP Towns - after the Troubled Assets Relief Program approved by Congress in October of 2008. ESSENCE bestselling author D T Pollard expresses a unique view on the economic crisis that exploded onto the scene in 2008 and describes how that financial downturn may save the United States of America from itself.
FOOLS' HEAVEN - Love, Lust and Death beyond the Pulpit
What happens when lust, depravity, and ego make themselves known in a setting of utmost venerability?
Born to two poor rural high school dropouts, Mike Robertson is a young white man called to preach at an early age. Janice Johnson, a young black woman four years older than Mike, is drawn to this teenage tent preacher. As husband and wife, they leave their modest origins behind and rise to lead a megachurch empire in Dallas, Texas.
The journey from obscurity to religious superstardom is fraught with many challenges, including racial discrimination, drugs, deception, moral depravity, sexual assault, and a murder attempt—all in the name of religion.
Spanning more than fifty years, this engaging novel focuses on this determined interracial couple who learn that life can take them from the humblest beginnings to the highest of heights, even as they struggle to maintain their perspectives.
ROOFTOP DIVA - A Novel of Triumph After Katrina
…she was called the rooftop diva by the man that saved her, but she never knew his name. She must have passed out because the next time her eyes opened she was surrounded by a throng of people at an aid station. A kind lady gave her a cold bottle of water and then reality started to settle in that all she owned was clinging to her in the form of the clothing she wore.
“Has anyone seen my grandmother Martha Devareaux?” she inquired and all that met her was a blank stare and a shake of the head for no.
Deep down inside her mind, she knew that her grandmother was floating in the water that swamped their house. It came in so quickly. By the time Monique realized what was happening it was up to her neck. She called for her grandmother, but at eighty years old and wheelchair bound, there was little chance that she survived. Not only was she homeless and destitute, she was also alone.
Could Monique rebuild her life in a new city while encountering wealth, love, violence and betrayal along a twenty year journey after Hurricane Katrina?
