A Seed for Cora LEE
Independently Published, Jan 27, 2021 - 358 pages
NEW ORLEANS - LATE 1960'SCora Lee Baptiste, a beautiful Creole woman with dreams of growing a family with her loving husband, Leon, screams out in her sleep during a recurrent nightmare. Before leaving for work as a shrimper, Leon and Cora Lee make love in their modest, bayou cabin with the hope of her conceiving. However, their plans are greatly altered when on that wet and stormy New Orleans morning she crosses paths with escaped prisoner Colin Cyrus; a psychotic triple-murderer on the run. Colin brutally rapes Cora Lee and kills Leon before he is shot by a pursuing Detective; Raleigh Spencer. But things get all the more despairing for the stunned Cora Lee. The rape, or their morning lovemaking, may have resulted in a pregnancy; yet, the baby Cora Lee always wanted may not be hers to keep. And, when New Orleans is thrust into a quagmire of absolute evil and suspenseful encounters with the supernatural, a determined and guilt-ridden Detective Spencer seeks to decipher the message being sent from beyond the grave. Finally, a question of faith arises for many as they seek to overcome the shroud of darkness that has enveloped their lives.
