Revere, Mississippi, with its population of "20,000 and sinking," is not unlike most Southern towns in the 1960s. Blacks live on one side of town and whites on the other. The two rarely mix. Or so everyone believes. But the truth is brought to the forefront when Critter, who is only ten, black and barely tall enough to see over the dashboard, drives Billy Ray—wounded in a suspicious hunting accident—to the segregated Doctor's Hospital. Dr. Cooper Connelly, the town's most high-profile resident, assures Billy Ray's family he'll be fine. He dies, however, and most people assume it is just a typical hunting accident—until the sheriff orders an investigation.
Suddenly the connections between white and black are revealed to be deeper than anyone expects, which makes the town's struggle with integration that much more complicated and consuming. Dr. Connelly takes an unexpectedly progressive view toward integration; the esteemed Dr. Reese Jackson, who is so prominent that even Ebony has profiled him, tries to stay above the fray. At times, it seems the town's only distraction is the racially ambiguous Madame Melba, a fortune-teller and "voyeur" with a past.
With endearing, fully realized characters and a mystery that will keep readers guessing until the final page, The Air Between Us will keep you engrossed until the end.
Deborah Johnson is an award-winning national recording artist, composer, author and educator. Her ability to relate to a multi- generational audience doesn't merely come from her Master's Degree, but also from her natural abilities and varied experience. She has not only written three full-length staged musicals, but successfully produced two world premieres, working with a varied cast of characters and temperaments. She has also successfully hosted and coordinated artist showcase rooms all across the country in national booking conferences, working on both sides of the fence, with agents and artist teams.
With over two dozen albums, four books and hundreds of songs, Deborah understands how to complete projects successfully. She also understands the challenges of change in today's economic climate and the healthy mental code that is necessary to do so. She is passionate about her work, displayed by the volume of her output and research.
As an entertainer, she has toured the world and has been up for a number of Grammy Awards. Deborah has performed large stage concerts with Double Grandé, a dueling piano (but different!) headliner act, also incorporating multi-media and her soaring vocals. Give her a microphone and keyboard and you will experience her deft ability to move between an impactful message and music. There are only a handful of women in the world with her abilities, and only one with her heart and smile: Deborah Johnson.
