About the Author:

C. Kelly Robinson lives with his wife, who is also a writer.

From Booklist:

Deacon Davis, former football star and son of a renowned civil rights leader, is battling with his stuttering. After an embarrassing television interview and a forced resignation from the first African American political party, American Dream, he finally seeks professional help. Deacon decides to attend the Speech Recovery Clinic run by a nationally renowned speech therapist. The annual intensive residential summer program for adult stutterers is one of the best. He is assigned to work with the speech therapist, Maria Oliver. Maria has her own struggles. When she was unable to provide for her son, she gave him to her brother. He and his wife willingly accepted responsibility. Now that Maria has her life together, she wants to challenge the custodial arrangement. Yet that fight is complicated by her attraction to Deacon. Their one-night stand threatens to jeopardize her job and cause her further distress. When Deacon and Maria decide to confide in, support, and depend on one another, they face some unexpected joys and pains. A compelling story. Lillian Lewis
