It is 1945 in Mississippi's cotton country, and Missy Parker is seven years old, strong-willed, and very precocious. Her best friend, Junior Washington, lives across Cat Lake from the Parker's plantation. Missy, her big brother Bobby, and Junior are inseparable. However, the Parkers and the Washingtons are of differing faiths, and of different races.

Against the background of the dynamic relationships between these rich characters, an enthralling struggle between good and evil emerges, when a demon targets Missy and creates havoc throughout her family and community. This first book in 'The Black or White Chronicles' relates the sweeping saga of a young girl's battle with one of hell's minions determined to destroy her and those closest to her.

About the Author:

JOHN AUBREY ANDERSON grew up in Mississippi cotton country. After graduating from Mississippi State, he received an Air Force commission and has recently retired after flying twenty-eight years for a major airline. The first in the 'Black or White' series, Anderson's first novel, is a vehicle he hopes will sink the talons of eternal truth into the center of the reader's heart. He lives in Texas with his wife, Nan.

From AudioFile:

In ABIDING DARKNESS, the war between God and Satan is made real. The first novel in Andersons Black or White series is set in 1945 Mississippi, when the U.S. fought to free people overseas while struggling with racism on its own shores. Lillian Thayer is such a powerful narrator that she makes this a driveway audiobook, one that makes listeners not want to leave the car. Shes outstanding as 7-year-old Missy, a child the devil and his legions have targeted. Especially impressive is how expertly Thayer portrays the rest of the cast, including Missys friend Moses as well as the town bullies. Think born-again Stephen King and substitute devils for ghosts and monsters. This is a gripping piece of writing and narration.
