The love of a U.S. Marine and a black Navy nurse is tested when his father rejects her and disowns his son. Love and forgiveness will overcome hate and bigotry in this captivating plot of C.C. Crawford’s, “Our Place in Time.” (Published by Xlibris).

Grover, a Marine Lieutenant, critically wounded while deployed to Korea, is saved by Valory, a black Navy Nurse who refuses to let him die. They eventually develop a relationship with each other.

The plot thickens when after thirty years, Grover receives a letter from his father inviting them to visit the family home in the small, all white town of Ocoee, Florida.

“Our Place in Time” shows how hatred and bigotry can destroy a family and how love and forgiveness can triumph over evil and correct a wrong. Crawford says her hometown of Ocoee was tarnished for years because of the actions of a few, and hopes to redeem some of its dignity through this book.
