Looking For A Place In The Sun is the story of Terry Gooding who grew up a "sheltered and shy Black youth". The book follows Terry from his early Christian beginnings through his denial of all he has formally believed and back to the place where it all began - faith.
Looking For A Place In The Sun goes a big step further than other stories about poverty-stricken Blacks who beat the odds to make it in life. It leads readers past just obtaining success in this life and takes them to where they can find eternal success -- and that's to Jesus Christ.
