Fannie Adams was born in 1887 in Missouri and had strong opinions about the human race. Her novel, “Blue Bloods” (published by AuthorHouse), centers on the theme about how it feels to deal with racial prejudice. Rolland Taylor, her son and the editor of the book, was angry at the racial prejudice, did not want the book published because of the racial feelings it would arouse, and threw it in the garbage. Years later, he found another copy of the book in his mother’s things and decided to publish it as an example of feelings during depression days.

Based on news articles, the book is about intermarriage between blacks and whites. Also, the book is slanted with racial prejudice on intermarriage.

“Blue Bloods” features a white couple who marries thinking that they would have white children, found out that when twins are born: one is white and one mulatto. The drama that follows shows the feelings of parents and children as they deal with life in interracial situations during depression days. According to Taylor, there are many dramatic stories within the stories.

“(The book) gives us an idea what life was nearly a hundred years ago,” says Taylor. “In a modern time of continuing racial tension, we can understand a little better where we came from and where we are going.”
