A new riveting read is all set to captivate everyone’s heart and stir one’s imagination as author Shawn J. Hobson releases, through Xlibris, The Great American White Woman, a wonderful tale about life, relationship, and human obsession.
The Great American White Woman is a charming tale that reflects perceptions of an uncertain society. The story chronicles the life and death of Niece Thompson. Niece suffers a tormented childhood and witnesses her younger sister killed by a drunk driver. Through her adolescence, she endures an abusive mother that hides behind the veil of Christianity. To establish a sense of self, Niece runs away from home, but her experiences have virtually shaped a delusional and skewed view of the world around her.
Homeless and struggling, Niece meets Hope Andersen. They fall in love, but as a young woman Niece’s sexuality and personal identity fall victim to her past. As they plan for a future together, Hope’s deepest carnal desires mark their relationship with a degree of darkness and turmoil. Niece’s worst fears manifest in the graceful form of her adversary, a blonde-haired woman named Casky. The ensuing conflict between Niece and Casky is a portrayal of self-serving corruption in pursuit of an overwhelming desire.
Combining elements of suspense and romance, the literary contribution is designed to capture the imagination with a polemic challenge to race, religion, and relationships. The story in its shallows examines covetousness, worship, desire, and praise. However, in its surreal depths uncovers the idolization of the blonde, the brunette, and the redhead.
Very different, the work travels through the Church of the Great American White Woman and takes us to the door of Pandemonium. Filled with unique and memorable characters, the story is an intricate web of life and human nature. For more information on The Great American White Woman, log on to Xlibris.com.
