About this title


Ever since he was fifteen, John King has been on the run from the ghosts of his past. Drifting from place to place, John never settles down in one place or with one woman. That is, until he rolls into Denver, Colorado, grooving to Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" and meets Connie Rogers. Having grown up on the mean streets, Connie has pain and battle scars of her own. Yet, it is her beautiful and lonely face that inspires John to think, "If indeed there was a home for the perfect kiss, it would be on her lips." Though he's reluctant to admit it, John soon realizes that Connie is the only woman who just may understand his very soul. Now, they both must face their pasts if they ever hope to build a future together.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for And On the Eighth Day She Rested:
"Ending in triumph, Ruth's metamophosis from from battered wife to a successful African-American businesswoman is...undeniably sympathetic."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Ms. Mason...blesses the audience with a story that is not only unforgettable, but also emotionally charged and breathtakingly poignant."
-QBR, The Black Book Review

"Mason's book weaves an incredible tale of a black woman's... journey to empowerment, freedom, and the hope of love once again."
-The Urban Spectrum
