Sunday Everette has a childhood unlike any other in the Jim Crow era of the South, growing up at the Pea Island Life-Saving Station among the barren dunes of North Carolina's stormy Outer Banks. In sheltered isolation, guided solely by the influence of the Station's heroic all-black crewmen, she blossoms into a strong and beautiful young woman with a spirit to match. But Sunday's secluded paradise cannot last. Her calm, simple days by the sea must inevitably give way to the fast-approaching storms of life. Unexpectedly, those darkening skies bring with them an unlikely mix of forbidden love, murder, and revenge along with a Nazi submarine carrying millions of dollars in gold stolen from Hitler's Third Reich. First in a trilogy, Sunday's Child begins the saga of three unique families from across the world, flung fatally together by three of mankind s most basic traits: war, love, and greed.

Review:

Sunday's Child....ebbs and flows like the waters lapping against the sands of Pea Island, North Carolina. At times calm and warm, sometimes rough and tumble, occasionally violent, the tale captures a sense of time and place and those brave souls who lived at the far reaches of our shores. It is a page-turner with an intricate plot that introduces the reader to a number of fascinating characters about whom they soon care a lot about... -- The Rocky Mount Telegram, July 16th, 2006

While on the surface this may appear to be a simple novel, we become increasingly aware of depths and nuances embedded in the plot as the tale unfolds. How does a girl raised by a bunch of men, however well meaning, learn to be a woman? How does she learn social skills and how does she acquire the knowledge of society at large that will enable her to make her way in this often bewildering world? Lewis answers these questions, and many others that this reviewer never considered, with a deft hand. It is obvious from the early stages that this is a well researched story. There was much with which i was familiar, but there was much, much more that was new, and fascinating, to me. Sunday's child is the first in a trilogy, and it will be difficult for Lewis to top this opening volume. A fascinating story, and a good read. --Sun Journal, July 2, 2006
