Author Judith A. Dempsey observes how people today settle differences – by means of violence. Assassinations, terrorist attacks, school shootings and even the entertainment and gaming industry encourage the use of violence to put an end on conflicts.

Dempsey provides an ideal illustration against the dominant view of violence in her latest book release “Joshua's Journey” (published by Trafford Publishing). The young protagonist’s faults, struggles and support he received from others will inspire readers to use their talents and gifts in pursuing their dream, making the world a more peaceful and loving community.

Joshua is an absent-minded, 12-year old African-American boy who was born right after the Civil War. Joshua fails to hold the reins of the plantation-owner’s war horse properly while the owner’s young daughter tries to ascend the steps of the buggy. She falls, hits her head and becomes unconscious. Joshua Jordan’s sister challenges him to find the Swamp Woman and to get a cure for the girl.

“Joshua's Journey” chronicles Joshua’s struggle to become a doctor in the segregated South. “I want readers to recognize that peace between individuals, races and countries is only possible when people are willing to compromise and support each other,” Dempsey tells.

An excerpt from the book “Joshua's Journey:”
Reverend Smedes often quoted to us Romans 5. He reminded us to rejoice in our sufferings because Saint Paul says suffering produces character. We all know that the Negro race has its share of suffering. I want to tell you the Negro race also has an abundance of character.
