The world may look tolerant of the social changes made, but people still face prejudice.

Despite significant strides in the battle for acceptance and tolerance in our society, many people still battle discrimination and judgment for their chosen relationships.

In Erálides E. Cabrera’s new book, “It’s Raining Tonight”, he tells the story of a young interracial couple and their experiences with love, conflict and the obstacles of both family and society. Cabrera provides an emotional and hopeful look at the difficulties surrounding interracial relationships in a modern world, including prejudice, acceptance and expectation.

“This is a story about love, passion, the defeat of evil and hope,” said Cabrera. “Much like the negativity behind prejudice is relentless, I set the book amid steady rain to symbolize the difficulties the characters have to deal with constantly.”

Originally from Cuba and having spent years in Spain, Cabrera came to the United States more than 50 years ago. His experiences living in different countries, as well as his extensive career in law, have exposed him to a variety of mindsets and changes.

“The world may look tolerant of the social changes made, but people still face prejudice and hate,” said Cabrera. “I wrote this book not only because I enjoy writing stories of love and hope, but also to tackle sensitive topics relating to today’s society.”
