Author: Ernest Hill
Publisher: Kensington Publishing Corp.
"Hill offers a poignant portrait of a young man at a crossroads, struggling with the true meaning of love and torn between the pleadings of the women in his life." —Booklist Maurice Dupree is the first person in his family to go to college, and now he's on his way to becoming the first African American attorney in his hometown. If only the woman he loved, the woman he'd hoped to marry since high school, were as happy for him as everyone else is. Omenita Jones isn't planning on waiting three more minutes, much less three more years, to start her life with Maurice. If he wants to go to law school, that's fine. But she won't be waiting when he's finished. Feeling more alone than ever, Maurice finds an unexpected ally in a young white woman. Danielle Davenport is the daughter of an influential judge. Maurice's mother is the Davenports' longtime housekeeper. As his friendship with this compassionate woman grows, she becomes a source of strength when he makes a stunning choice, one that will put everything—and everyone—he believes in to the test.

Publisher: U of Nebraska Press
In 1961 President John F. Kennedy challenged the United States to land a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth before the end of the decade. It seemed like an impossible mission and one that the Russians?who had launched the first satellite and put the first man into Earth orbit?would surely achieve before the Americans. However, the ingenuity, passion, and sacrifice of thousands of ordinary people from all walks of life enabled the space program to meet this extraordinary goal. This is the story of fourteen of those men and women who worked behind the scenes, without fanfare or recognition, to make the Apollo missions successful.
