Jewel is a high minded woman married to a lush, during the 1950's. She struggles valiantly to get her six children out of the ghetto. This is her story.


Excerpt

"Solomon Shepherd! If you don't get over here you better! You know good and well I was waiting on you." Standing arms akimbo on her her gaunt hips, Jewel's voice held the quiet undertow of dangerous flood waters. Approximately ten feet from her, eyes squinted in a glassy, drunken stupor, Solly half-leaned, half-stood over a round table covereed with a checkered oilcloth. Jewel's eyes traveled down to his large brown hands encircling a foamy mug of beer. His dark brown features--the color of polished onyx--once so handsome to her--ran together like a broken egg. His neon- red eyes blazed with the shock of recognition when he saw Jewel.

Reader Reviews for "The Ebony Tree"

Reviewed by Maya 12/13/2002
This book is phenomenal. Maxine has a grasp on the Black Strong Woman syndrom without being preachy. She tells this story in such vivid detail and character development. I wish it were longer. I wanted to hear about Jewel's life now. Awesome.
