Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) August 17, 2012
The second title in the Tulsa Series authored by Norma Jean Lutz, takes readers from the actual event of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot (featured in Book #1, Tulsa Tempest) to the days of the aftermath as the black community of Greenwood attempts to dig out of the rubble.
Tulsa Turning stars a young up-and-coming New York City newspaper reporter, Clarette Fortier. In a day and time when women were unwelcome in the newsroom, Clarette is undaunted. When her editor ships her out to Tulsa to cover the recent “negro uprising,” she tackles the assignment with gusto, even in the face of death threats.
“Clarette quickly became one of my favorite characters,” says Norma Jean. “She’s gutsy and decisive. In spite of having a family fortune at her disposal, she ignores it to follow her dreams.”
The Tulsa Series, originally published in the 1990s by Barbour Publishing, Inc., includes:
Return to Tulsa
The setting of 1920s Tulsa, then dubbed The Oil Capital of the World, reveals a time of immense wealth and city growth, but also a time of grievous lawlessness.
A review by Romance Readers at Heart had this to say about Tulsa Turning:
“Tulsa Turning is another riveting story told in a time when the lines between black and whites were clearly drawn. It's also told in a time where women weren't easily accepted by men in the work place. Two sensitive topics, woven intricately together to form an incredibly wonderful read. Another recommended book!”
