The Jenny Devareaux Chronicles Number 1, a new book by Jennette King, has been released by RoseDog Books.

“Trust” was not just a word; it was a way of life way back when…

In the late fifties and early sixties, a group of colored kids grew up in a small rural community, where they faced many challenges. Read about their joys and their horrors and the courage it took to stand up for what is right, demanding justice for all.

This story is not about your typical stereotype black family you see depicted in many of today’s TV shows. And this story is not about the era of the white man oppressing the colored man. It’s about being human. It’s about being friends no matter how diverse the roads are.

And believe it or not, in their neck of the woods, their white sheriff and his deputies didn’t go about hunting down colored folks with hound dogs for sure sport. Learn just how the sheriff dealt with lawbreakers, white or colored.

You may be thinking I am an ignorant author, but I’m far from it. I know all too well the stigma of racial upheaval, but it did not happen in Mills Creek.

So now enter the world of Jenny Devareaux. And if The Jenny Devareaux Chronicles Number 1 entertained you, you will surely be entertained with installments 2 and 3.

Note to readers: The word “colored” is not intended to offend black people of today. It is simply the way it was back then.

Jennette King lives in Mississippi with her husband and four dogs. She realizes that the most valuable asset she has is the ability to keep a secret, but when that secret threatens to take out her family and friends and everyone around her, she tells no matter the consequences.

The Jenny Devareaux Chronicles Number 1 is a 36-page paperback with a retail price of $9.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-9665-7. RoseDog Books of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania published it.
