Soon to be completed: Delusions of the HUMAN Kind. When an automobile accident leaves Ma’am teetering between life and death, the troubled WRITER must deal with the challenges and inner demons that plague her. The disembodied spirit of slave George comes in answer to her prayers for help to FINISH a BOOK about his plantation home, and unveils the character and integrity of a tortured soul who, unlike Ma’am, learns how to use life’s tragedies to become a better man. The choices she now makes will determine the course of her eternity.
