It's All About the Moon When the Sun Ain't Shining

by Ernest Hill

Booklist calls his novel A Life for a Life "compelling," and calls Satisfied With Nothin' "an exceptional literary piece that some readers will compare to Richard Wright's Native Son." His Cry Me a River has been equally embraced by both readers and reviewers.

Now, in his new novel, It's All About the Moon When the Sun Ain't Shining, Ernest Hill introduces readers to Maurice Dupree. He's the first person in his family to go to college, and now he's well on his way to becoming the first African American attorney in his hometown of Brownsville, Louisiana and its entire parish. Maurice's dreams seem to be coming true - all except what may be the most important one. The woman he loves, the woman he hopes to marry, isn't planning on waiting for him.

Infused with the spirit and traditions of the South, It's All About the Moon When the Sun Ain't Shining takes readers on a journey through life's most momentous crossroads.
