9781469142449: A Homicide in Hooker's Point

"A HOMICIDE IN HOOKER'S POINT" is a story of life, love and tragedy in the small community of Hooker's Point, Florida, near Lake Okeechobee.Set in 1950, the novel explores the unique experiences of cultural and racial prejudice through the eyes of eight-year-old Vicki Bayle, whose big heart and sensitive nature make her vulnerable to some of the most chilling facets of the human condition.Vicki learns that love and hate are drawn from the same well, that some of the people she loves most keep stores of each in equal measure, and that prejudice is not always about color.During one tragic weekend of violence, Vicki learns that all living beings inexplicably are both good and evil, including herself. This was a concept she would accept late in life, but never truly embrace."A HOMICIDE IN HOOKER'S POINT" is Weinberg's debut novel. It won a 2011 Royal Palm Literary Award from the Florida Writers Association and was the 2015 North Street Book Prize winner for mainstream/literary fiction.

Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.2in. x 1.0in.In the fall of 1950, Vicki Leigh Bayle learned that love and hate are drawn from the same well, and that some of the people she loved most kept stores of each in equal measure. In the segregated context of South Florida, she learned that prejudice is not always about color, and that truth, as adults define it, is malleable. During one tragic weekend of violence, Vicki saw that all living beings inexplicably are both good and evil, depending on circumstances. Including herself. This was a concept she would accept late in life, but never truly embrace. Gloria Taylor Weinberg is a fourth-generation Floridian and award-winning journalist who now writes for Indian River Magazine. She lives in Fort Pierce, Florida, with her husband, Mark, and Dudley, their spoiled cocker spaniel. Weinberg also paints, with a special love for the flora, fauna and unique light of her native state. HOMICIDE IN HOOKERS POINTis her debut novel.
