Xlibris, the world’s leading print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Chief Samson and Reverend Delilah, a new book authored by Anne Drover (The Reluctant Cougar).
Chief Samson and Reverend Delilah tells the fictional story of residents in the town of Ridgefield, Connecticut. Readers will meet a memorable cast of diverse characters: Chief Samson, an eighty-five year old Native North American Indian chief, now legally blind; Reverend Delilah, a retired African American Baptist minister, recently hired as Chief Samson’s live-in companion; and Mrs. Fancy, a devout Roman Catholic, guarding a secret from her past and working as Chief Samson’s long time housekeeper. The book, while taking a humorous approach to the subject of prejudice, asks relevant questions about getting along in today’s world. It also emphasizes issues about cultural conflicts, community building, righteousness, and other issues readers can easily relate with.
Readers who wish to order a copy of the book are encouraged to visit Xlibris.com or call toll free (888) 795-4274 today.
