9780758213150: Family Ties

In the acclaimed A Life for a Life, Ernest Hill created an unforgettably candid story of violence, love, and redemption with teenaged D'Ray Reid at its center. Now, with his jail time behind him, D'Ray has returned home to find that the real fight for survival is only beginning.  .  .

Everyone  was shocked when Mr. Henry took teenaged D’Ray Reid under his  wing—especially after what happened between D’Ray and Mr. Henry’s own  son, Stanley. Yet in the years since, Mr. Henry has tried to show D’Ray  how to become the man Stanley would never be.
 
After Mr.  Henry’s death, D’Ray seeks out his own mother, Mira, hoping to rebuild  their broken relationship. But D’Ray’s homecoming is tumultuous.  Arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, his younger brother, Little Man,  has escaped and is in hiding. Mira blames D’Ray, but she has her own  secrets to hide. And putting things right will mean uncovering a legacy  of lies and hidden agendas, and realizing the only way to be free of the  past is to stand tall and confront it at last...

Review:

Praise for the novels of Ernest Hill

"If novels offer us a way of seeing the world that we could not imagine before, A Life for a Life does just that." --The Times-Picayune

"An exceptional literary piece that some readers will compare to Richard Wright's Native Son."--Booklist on Satisfied with Nothin'

"As the story unfolds.  .  .these unforgettable characters come to full, sympathetic life."--Publishers Weekly on A Person of Interest

"A skilled storyteller." --New York Times Book Review

“Family Ties is an explosive account of a family's separation due to lies, secrets, and favoritism. Faith, forgiveness, and family are the subject matters that make this novel an
attention-grabbing story.” —The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers

“A writer of great power and psychological depth, creating characters that resonate brilliantly beyond the boundaries of gender and race.”
—Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Good Scent from a
Strange Mountain
