Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) July 20, 2012
The riot that occurred on May 31 and June 1, 1921 destroyed 35-square blocks of residential neighborhoods and scores of prosperous businesses. No official count of those who died, but it’s estimated to be in the thousands. It is against the backdrop of this drama that Norma Jean Lutz set her 4-title Tulsa series novels.
Return to Tulsa
The series was first published by Barbour Publishing, of Uhrichsville, OH, a standard in the Christian publishing industry.
Tulsa Tempest relates the experiences of a young country girl, Tessa Jurgen, who comes to the teaming metropolis of Tulsa to serve as governess to the children of an oil baron. She is unwittingly thrown into the midst of a simmering cauldron of racial tension.
“Researching story material in my own home town of Tulsa was pure joy,” says Norma Jean, veteran author of over 50 published books. “The story of Tessa Jurgen is timeless. Many satisfied readers loved Tessa when the books were first published in the 90s; I’m confident a new legion of readers will feel the same way.”
