A beautiful and sensuous woman, Freddie Walker, has fallen into the hands of a vain and greedy businessman, Jimmy Tate.

When Jimmy finds out he goes berserk and attempts to kill her. But her best friend, Ruby Johnson, a woman of deep faith who has a special relationship with God, arrives just in time. Inside Freddie's dark bedroom a struggle ensues and Jimmy is killed. The children are sent to foster homes and separated from one another. Freddie and Ruby are sent to prison. But did Ruby really kill Jimmy? What sacrifices did Freddie make for the sake of her children? What secrets did she keep from them? What is their legacy? As adults, will they have the courage to meet each other to find out?

Two Kinds of Color is an exceptionally beautifully written novel. The characters are compelling and believable and the message of love and sacrifice and true friendship is touching and unforgettable. I savored this book. It is not a book to be skimmed through but read thoughtfully and carefully. The ability of Ms. Kennedy to present her story with such insight and heart-felt emotion is remarkable. I read a great many books and, like most of us, have my favorite authors. I look forward to reading any other novel my newest favorite author writes. Thank-you Ms. Kennedy, I enjoyed Two Kinds of Color very much.
OMG! This was one of the most amazing, thrilling, novels I have ever read. When I started reading it I couldn't put it down. The writer's style is unique and refreshing. Deborah held me from the first paragraph to the last. I'm looking forward to reading whatever this writer comes out with next.
