BeschreibungA racially fueled incident exposes the fissures that sit beneath the surface of friendships and families, causing even more damage than the massive earthquake that separates them, The Earth Breaks in Colors is a powerful story of race and redemption. Whisper and Odelia are eleven-year-old girls who find refuge in the quiet corner of innocent friendship. Their Southern California homes each play host to an undercurrent of secrets. For Whisper that means a fractured mother returning from rehab, for Odelia a brother whose absence is laced with mystery. Race had no real place in the playful friendship of the white Whisper and the black Odelia, until a terrifying encounter brings prejudice to the forefront of their lives, opening their young hearts to ill begotten emotion. A violent earthquake further tears the world as they know it apart. Can hope and innocence be restored? An heirloom timepiece, a curious old woman and an unlikely hero join the girls as they search for their families and understanding among the rubble.
Patti Davis is the author of ten books, including The Long Goodbye (about her father Ronald Reagan’s final days with Alzheimer’s), Till Human Voices Wake Us, and The Wit and Wisdom of Gracie: An Opinionated Pug’s Guide to Life.
