About this title


Out of Tragedy is a heartwarming African American contemporary tale of tragedy, grief, guilt, lost love, friendship, bonding, romance, soul searching, and a second chance at love.

Stephanie Grayson Russell is a 45-year-old widow and successful author of African American children's books living in Detroit, Michigan. When her 25-year-old daughter, Rachel, is killed in a hit-and-run accident, Grayson turns to Rachel's fiancé, Leonard King, for shared grief, comfort, and friendship. What she hadn't counted on was developing romantic feelings for the 37-year-old police detective. These feelings are returned in full force leading to passion, guilt, confusion, secrecy, and eventually love and togetherness. Leonard Evan King, an African American fraud investigator for the Detroit Police Department, is determined to see to it that the hit-and-run driver responsible for his beloved Rachel's death is brought to justice. At the same time he comes to know and appreciate her mother, Grayson, in ways he never could have imagined--finding a love he thought was buried forever with Rachel.

Judith Wagner is a 40-year-old white, part-time student, wife, and mother. She did not know when she fled the scene that the person she hit and killed with her car was her psychology professor, Rachel Russell. But the damage had already been done and she feared the consequences should she come forward and admit her guilt and the fact that she had been drinking the night of the accident. So she keeps the secret to herself, hoping the whole thing will somehow disappear--even as she struggles with guilt, family problems, and the fear of detection. Each of the principal characters of the novel must come to terms with the tragedy and their interrelationships as the investigation into Rachel's death unfolds.
