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.

Turmoil comes to what was peaceful Mississippi cotton country in 1945 when good and evil go to war at Cat Lake. Missy and Bobby Parker, white children from a privileged family, and Junior Washington, their black friend, are caught in the epicenter of the first battle.

In the aftermath, Missy takes up a life mission that fuels the fire of aggression in the evil lurking in the lake. The war destroys lives in and around Missy's family and community. The lives of the Parker and Washington families, linked for generations by land and work, are now bound by spiritual warfare.

Missy struggles to find the strength to endure the onslaught. With the help of supernatural guardians and the spiritual guidance and love of both families, Missy must come to terms with the truth about the malevolent plot against her -- or die trying.

About the Author:

JOHN AUBREY ANDERSON was growing up in Mississippi cotton country when he saw John Wayne star in ''Flying Tigers'' and knew he wanted to be a pilot. After graduating from Mississippi State University, he joined the Air Force, served three tours in Southeast Asia, and went on to fly planes for Delta Air Lines for twenty-eight years. Now retired from the cockpit, he writes novels, including the acclaimed 'Black or White Chronicles' trilogy, and lives with his wife in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area of Texas.

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.
