About this title


Eliza s Dream is paramount black literature. In 1893 Eliza Parker, the beautiful daughter of a bi-racial former slave and a Native American woman was happy attending school and sharing childish confidences with her best friend, Savannah. One day as Eliza and Savannah completed their chores and giggled, an older man, Jenkins Lee, came to call on her parents and Eliza found herself betrothed to a stranger with her dream of finishing school being thrown away with the bathwater. While in rural southwestern Georgia, Eliza deals with a philandering, physically abusive, and usually absent husband that rambles in and out of her and her eight children lives. Because of her tenacious Christian values, Eliza struggles with her situation and emotions; especially after a handsome, attentive, former school friend (Sol) begins to show his interest. Eliza s abusive husband Jenkins returns home and assumes his beloved Eliza has engaged in a forbidden affair with gentleman Sol, leaving dear individuals brutally attacked. Death, bitterness, sorrow, and a strange twist of fate makes Eliza question her faith in God, the meaning of life, and all that it holds for her. Inspirational, Historical, Romantic, and Christian...Eliza s Dream belongs in the same category as gifted authors Zora Neale Hurston, Bernice McFadden, and J. California Cooper. Let s give praise for keeping African American, fictional and factual accounts of black heritage alive.

About the Author:

The last of five children, Wynter Cuthbert grew up in Orlando, Florida where she graduated from Edgewater High School. She attended the University of Central Florida where she received her bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice. Wynter has worked as a probation officer, state certified child protective investigator, and teacher. Currently, she is working in Florida's Ninth Judicial Circuit where she is helping the role of the Court Monitor evolve. Wynter is married to her soul mate, Darrell Cuthbert. She has one son, Stephen and three step-children, J'Tangela, Darius and Kirsten. She attends Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church and is active in the church's Couples Ministry. In her spare time, she likes to read, bake and research her family's genealogy. Her genealogy research has afforded her the privilege of meeting hundreds of relatives she never knew existed, and has taken her to the rural parts of Southwestern Georgia, and Alabama—including Dawson, Florence, Lumpkin, Providence Canyon, Cuthbert, Camilla, Eufala, and many other towns, and sites—that she has come to know and love.
